CHARLES CLIFFE came to Sault Ste. Marie from British Columbia in 1902. He purchased a weekly newspaper, the Algoma Pioneer, which he converted to a daily paper. The paper closed down six years later, after a fire destroyed the plant located on the west side of Pim Street. After the fire he moved to March Street and then, in 1926, to larger quarters and the firm’s present location at 118 Spring Street.
