business adverts

The Royal Almanac of 1837, the earliest publication we have so far obtained which carries a selection of typical almanac adverts


One of the best resources for tracing the development of the commercial life of Jersey is the advertisements for businesses published over the decades. Newspaper adverts in the 19th century tended to be small and lacking in detail, but the adverts placed in the various almanacs published annually by the newspapers in business at the time are much more informative. On this page we have a selection of newspaper and almanac advertisements from the 1830s to the end of the century.

You will also find more recent advertisements on our page of 20th century Jersey business adverts

The adverts on these pages, plus many others, can also be found on the appropriate Family pages, and our pages covering individual town streets and country roads in Jersey

We also have a separate page of Almanac and newspaper advertisements for private schools

We apologise for the relatively poor quality of some of these images, but a certain amount of distortion and lack of clarity is inevitable when scanning the pages of a thick, tightly bound volume
