this and that

It’s surprising what you find…..

I’ve been delving through some old (very old) photographs prior to visiting an elderly uncle. One thing I didn’t expect to find was a newspaper published on 12th November 1918. It is faded and very fragile, but over the next few days I’ll post an odd picture or too as I gently unfold and see what is within.

This is my first view of the said pages

It seemed very strange reading this news ‘as it happened’ and published in the year of my mother’s birth.
