The Guardian, Charlottetown PEI

The Guardian began publishing as a daily in 1887 as the Morning Guardian. Over the years, this paper has also been known as the Guardian of the Gulf and the Charlottetown Guardian.

I'm sure this paper was read by Lucy Maud Montgomery, and probably by her fictional creations, Matthew, Marilla and Anne of Green Gables as well.

In 2014 Mark Leggott, a Librarian at the University of PEI, put the Guardian archive online, making it possible to search back through issues from 1890 to 1957.
