Newspapers from the 1950s

When we took up the flooring in the hall we found newspapers from the 1970s. But when we took up the floorboards to put in the central heating in the upstairs sitting room we found some even older papers from the 1950s.

It seems that it coincided with Ascot based on the coverage.

for queen and commonwealth no less!

 and then some lighter material…

Scandal!!!!!

all very reasonably priced.

and some adverts from the time.

One of the papers ran a strangely familiar article. They sent a little old lady out to see if anyone would offer their seats, help her across the road etc. No one did, conclusion the country has gone down hill – not like the good old days!
