Description:
A black and white photograph of the Whitby Chronicle office and staff. The bearded man at the far right is probably William Henry Higgins, the editor and publisher of the Chronicle. One of the other men is likely John Stanton, the head of the printers at the paper. To the left of the people in this photo is a sign that says "C.C. Keller law chancery conveyancing office".
Notes:
The Whitby Chronicle Office in this photo was built in 1862 at 173 Brock Street North,(on the east side of Brock Street, south of Mary Street, one door north of the Royal Hotel). It was constructed by John Ham Perry. The Whitby Chronicle was a newspaper which contained news of Ontario County. According to Brian Winter's book "Chronicles of a County Town" (1999), Mr. Higgins started the Whitby Chronicle newspaper business in December 1856 and published the Whitby Chronicle until March 29, 1883 when he sold the business to James S. Robertson. In 1912, Charles A. Goodfellow combined the Whitby Gazette with the Whitby Chronicle to form the Gazette and Chronicle. In January 1942, the Gazette and Chronicle combined with the Oshawa Daily Times to become the Times-Gazette, and later the Oshawa Times. The Oshawa Times ceased publication on November 5, 1994. This photograph was originally a stereograph but was rephotographed to create a copy negative for the Whitby Archives.
