We’re in the mood for birthday cake today. It’s the Camera’s 125th birthday!
The Camera became a daily newspaper on March 17, 1891. The Camera name was chosen because our founders envisioned a publication with more illustrations than most newspapers of that time.
We’ve been honing the vision and changing to fit the needs of our community ever since. The Camera started as a morning daily, changed to an afternoon paper in 1893, and hit our stride as a morning daily again in 1981. The Camera was one of the first local newspapers to publish online, in 1996.
During the course of the Camera’s long history, we’ve been owned by entrepreneurs, families, and corporations. But our heart and soul have always belonged to this community.
Back in 1891, the Camera would have been reporting on the new Boulder Railroad Depot. Just four months ago, that same building opened as a new restaurant in the Boulder Junction development. The Camera helps you keep up on what’s new, even when the old becomes new again.
We will always be your No. 1 local news source. It’s a point of pride with us.
