I was recently in the sunroom of our 103 year old home and noticed a few scraps of paper sticking out of the brass doorway. I pulled a few out and realized that they were clippings from the local newspaper dated February 27, 1939. One can imagine the family that was living here at the time. Dealing with the fall out from the Depression and a potentially colder than normal winter ripping up the newspaper and stuffing it in the frame of the door to prevent drafts of cold air. Some of the comics section is shown as well as a few other abstracted scraps. I thought they were interesting enough the post. Enjoy.
