Jack Greenald and myself put on our new 'historical anoraks' and headed for the newspaper library in Belfast, on Saturday morning past.

We were both searching for information on different projects that we are working on - Jack's is far more important than mine of course!

Whilst searching through the Newtownards Chronicle from 1916, I came across this unusual advertisement - Although I am very much a Newtownards man, I reside in Bangor, and us Bangorians tend to round our words a little more - that the folk fae Newton!

Here is the proof of imported speech therapists from Bangor to N'Ards as far back as 1916!
