Before the Burbank Daily Review, before The Burbank Leader and, yes ..Before myburbank.com there was the one & only news source in Burbank… “The Burbank Times”
This great local newspaper had its office and print shop right on Olive Ave about at San Fernando Rd. The paper printed local news, farm stats and even let you know when someone in town, was out of town! Can’t do that today!
I have read some of these fine editions with great interest.
The Ads, the people, and all the events hold long lost facts and a rare glimpse what it was like to live here in the 1800’s.
You can read some of these interesting things for yourself on our website “Burbankia” here… http://wesclark.com/burbank/3_30_1889/3_30_1889.htm
So before you leave town for Labor Day weekend be sure to let the Burbank Times know where you are going so they can publish it !
The current Burbank Times newspaper has no connection to the original one.
Below is the cover of the March 30 , 1889 edition.
