Scope and content

"They call them the "Old Guard," that collection of individuals who have done so much to determine the shape and destiny of the Town of Bradford. Most of them have lived here all their lives. They have gone to school here, raised their families here, worked here, and served in one official public capacity or other. In many ways, they personify what Bradford was, and to an extend still is. All the old guard was there Friday evening at the community centre to honor one of the senior members: Miss Margaret Davey, the clerk treasurer of the town for almost 33 years. Miss Davey, "Peg" to anyone who knew her, retired last March. Retired with her memories of a small town that had become too large to be run by the old guard anymore."
