When I first arrived at the Meridian Booster, our office was a lot bigger. The paper had previously taken up the length of the building, with our own printing press and the staff to maintain it. I came to Lloydminster a few years after the press was shut down. A few weeks after my arrival, the process of taking down the old machine and remaking the former press area into the new, modernized office of the Meridian Booster began. This is what it looked like.
