The Addie, which was established in May 1916, reaches 26 000 households each week. It was founded by TC Davies and has had only two other owners – the Dannheisser family and current owners Caxton. In its 97 years, the paper has been headed by 12 editors.

The paper has always been a regular feature in the town and has failed to appear on the streets of Springs only once since it was founded. During the 1922 strike, when founder TC Davies was jailed for attacking the government, the week’s papers were destroyed and the Addie was absent from the street for the first and only time.

The Advertiser is distributed, free of charge, to homes across the city every Thursday.
