The Bermudian

This year marks The Bermudian magazine’s 88th anniversary! Our first edition published on February 15, 1930, and it sold for one shilling! We thought we would share a few snippets from that issue:

Salutation

With this issue The Bermudian makes his bow to his fellow Bermudians, to those who have visited Bermuda in the past, who are here at present and who will come in the future.

His aim is—well, let’s see what his aim will be? Must he have an aim? Oh, well then let’s say his aim will be to give you an insight into Bermuda such as you might not be able to get elsewhere.

He will give you a few bits of information. Not too many. Perhaps just enough to tell you the difference between a twenty-five cent piece and a shilling—unless you’ve already discovered that there is no difference: what time the ferries leave—in case you are interested; where you ought to go during your visit here, what’s going on, and a few other things like that.

The Bermudian might become a little facetious at times, but it will all be in fun. A little levity now and then is tonic for the soberest of men.

In Old Bermuda

Wedding unites two of Bermuda’s oldest families. Mr. and Mrs. Eldon H. Trimingham, emerging from the Cathedral after their marriage, pass under an arch of spinnaker booms signifying the wish for a “fair weather” voyage on the high seas of matrimony.
