Newpaper Pages

These links connect to newspaper pages at Thomas Tryniski's "Old Fulton New York Post Cards" newspaper archives website at www.fultonhistory.com. Most of the pages are from the Lockport Union-Sun & Journal, but a few are from the Niagara Falls Gazette.

The links are ordered by publication dates.

After clicking on a link it may take a while for the page to be downloaded and displayed on your PC. Be patient -- the links do work.

Sometimes downloading is slow because of maintenance/upgrading activities occurring on the fultonhistory.com server. Sunday mornings seem to be one time of such activities.

To provide fair access to all users, the fultonhistory.com website limits daily downloading capacity (maximum number of downloaded megabytes) for each user, based on user IP addresses. This means that if you should try to download a large number of pages in one day, at some point you will exceed your quota for the day. This will be obvious because downloading will suddenly become very slow. In response to exceeding the quota, your downloading rate has been greatly reduced, although you are still permitted to download pages. If and when this happens, simply continue downloading pages on another day, such as the next day. Each user is given a new downloading quota each day.


The following link points to a collection of more than 500 photographs of Lockport taken by Edwin Polster in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. Likely some of the photographs will bring back memories of our school years in Lockport.
