|"Family Weekly" from The Daily Plainsman, Huron, SD, 1959|
I loved poring over the Sunday paper - we always looked at the Funnies and the Family Weekly (later USA Weekend). I also loved the circulars that would bulk up the paper around the holidays - in fact, my sister Jen and I used those circulars to make our Christmas lists. We'd cut out EXACTLY what we wanted so that "Santa" wouldn't make a mistake. The newspaper was also how I learned to read - my mom still swears to me that I was reading headlines at the age of three. Of course, there was no comprehension - but how weird would it have been to hear "Vietnam Death Toll Rises" out of a three year-old?
|A teeny-tiny Milwaukee Journal, only about 4" high - a premium from your newspaper carrier. This one is from 1958 and it's a complete, two-section, 20-page paper. AWESOME.|
