Unfolding a little at a time. Here is another little glimpse into the dramatic news that was unfolding.
I’m currently involved in a little ‘newspaper’ project of my own – painting and tearing today’s paper for a type of journal page. I’m documenting the journey here. Nothing as dramatic as the above – and I won’t be defacing that newspaper in any similar way, although I might use a photocopy at some point.
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.
