DigitalNC is excited to welcome our new partner, the Warren County Memorial Library, located in Warrenton, NC!
As their first contribution to DigitalNC, we are happy to publish several decades of The Warren Record newspaper. The issues date from 1929-1938 and from 1959-1970 are available for research and exploration.
The Warren Record was a weekly community newspaper that offered stories from both local and national headlines. During the earlier decades, it also included a page that was dedicated to the interests of women. The paper often reprinted popular fashion articles and images that were fresh from the New York runways. Like the images presented above, they present a unique look into the styles that women were exposed to during the early twentieth century, even in rural areas of North Carolina.
