100 Years Ago: Razors for Soldiers

The Intelligencer July 20, 1915 (page 2)Razors2a [1]

“To the Editor Intelligencer,—Sir.—Will you inform me in your paper who is taking charge of old razors collected for soldiers at the front. The Toronto Star is making a very strong appeal for anything in the shape of a razor to be sent to their office. Why not the same here? There must be thousands in our city and people would be glad to know where to leave them. Yours respectfully, ONE WHO HAS SIX.

Our correspondent’s suggestion is an admirable one, but we are not aware of any movement in the matter being made at Belleville.—Ed.”
