Newspapers galore

Finally getting to those papers I found a couple weeks back! Here’s a collection of newspapers – not the only cool “ephemera” (printed stuff) that I got, but it’s a start.

These papers go from 1963 to 1975, and cover some big events I do recognize – Expo 67, the moon landing, Charles De Gaulle talking about stuff – and a bunch of stuff that I’ve never really heard of but may be quite important as well.

I was learning how to take better photographs of papers as I went, so some pictures are definitely better than others. Most you may be able to zoom in and read the print, and others you may not. My apologies for the fuzzier stuff.

Either way, take a look!
