The Concord Daily Tribune, October 10, 1923

Nearly 1300 issues of The Concord Daily Tribune are now available on DigitalNC, covering the paper’s publication from 1923 through 1927. From Concord, North Carolina, The Concord Daily Tribune was generally published daily except Sundays for decades.  This paper is available thanks to a nomination from our partner Cabarrus County Public Library.

The paper covers local, statewide, national, and even international news for its audiences. While the efforts of the paper document serious journalism, the paper definitely includes quirky moments. There is no shortage of comic strips, and various animals even deliver meteorological reports on every front page:
