"The Herald's story begins with two men from Ontario looking for opportunity in the frontier.
Teacher Thomas Braden arrived just ahead of the Canadian Pacific Railway and waited for his friend Andrew M. Armour, a printer who was bringing with him a hand press. Calgary's rail lines ended at the river, so that press had to be floated across the river to a tent set up on the banks of the Elbow River.
From this unpromising plant came the first issue of The Calgary Herald, Mining and Ranche Advocate and General Advertiser. It hit the young town's streets in 1883, with four pages and selling 150 copies once a week. "

A photograph that depicts your presence at the building is necessary. This can be a picture of your GPSr in the foreground in only one of your many pictures, or if you're not too camera shy, put you or a team member in the picture. Maybe even buy a newspaper while they're still in business. They need all the help they can get. No picture, no new log. And no icon.
