Every Thursday on Facebook you see people posting photos from the past in a weekly tradition called 'Throwback Thursday.'

Our Vanguard newsroom has decided to do a weekly version of this on our website www.thevanguard.ca each Thursday as we look back through our photo vault and our newspapers over the decades.
