Breaking News ! For most of its 164 years, the Hamilton Advertiser’s home was the Press Buildings in Campbell Street. From the Victorian age to the digital revolution, generations of people with ink in their blood strove to fulfil the vision of our founder William Naismith, to supply a medium “for the ventilation of the wise thoughts of our thinking fellow townsmen, provided they are stated briefly, pithily and to the point.” It was on July 5, 1856, that the first issue of the Hamilton Advertiser and Newsletter was published. A modest four-sheet that cost a penny, it was put together premises in the Post Office Buildings, Quarry Street. Numbering only five, the original staff would soon move to the Black Bull Buildings, which was beside Baillie’s Causeway. And then in 1862 the Advertiser moved to its spiritual home, in Campbell Street.

. The thunder of hot metal typesetting would fade into the hum of personal computers as the decades progressed but the walls of that old building still bore witness to all the momentous changes and events that our predecessors covered. Every story comes to and end though, and so it is with the Press Buildings. Earlier this year, councillors approved plans to turn it into 25 flats for social housing. The bulldozers have moved in, but the foundations of accuracy, fairness, impartiality and a sense of community that were laid at the Press Buildings will still endure.
