For a third of them, the Civil War had ended less than 50 years previously and they had yet to see a world war.
Half of them celebrated the end of "The war to end all wars", the Great Stock Market Crash was still a 1/2 dozen years away, and Hitler would not be a citizen of Germany for another 10.
The remaining three celebrate other moments in our past.
I've decided that this blog will show little, if ever, seen slices of history. They will for the most part be human interest.
But, we begin with these newspapers. The images below are quick photos we took with out cell phone cameras. It is our intent to gently photograph each newspaper so that they can be read and enjoyed..this will take some time as they are in somewhat fragile shape.
