The Waldesian Newspapers of 1937

Collection Emile Favre
In partnership with the Cantonal and University Library of Lausanne

In October 1937 happened a very important event in Echallens: the representation of Aliénor, from René Morax and Gustave Doret, on the occasion of the inauguration of the Big room of the castle. About forty Waldesian newspapers have communicated and commented about the show.

About fourty Waldesian newspapers? The amount sounds incredible now that the written press is struggling to survive… Though, most of those newspapers were published at least twice a week and most of them contained a serie, in each number and during months!

80 years later, thanks to the important collection of Emile Favre and to the kind collaboration of the Cantonal and University Library of Lausanne, la Maison du Blé et du Pain gives you the unique opportunity to see that press from another time. Numerous extracts from press articles about the local events, the Swiss and international politics, the publicity and the classified ads will pull you into a time, not this far, but already so different of our time…
