Glorification and interest in the war was evident in several of Waterloo Region’s newspapers. Here the Berlin Daily Telegraph displays an advertisement for colourized maps of the frontlines, which would provide a visual aid to the average Canadian reader. While the maps do require an additional fee plus the daily subscription, they would provide readers with a way to track the campaign. The Elmira Signet was the only paper to offer free war maps with a subscription.
