old newspapers

One of my interests is social archiving, or saving old newspapers as Cass describes it. My collection dates from the 1950s, and some of the headlines and pictures are interesting as social history.


One of the best cuttings is from The Times, about a child caught looting in London during the Blitz, headlined

Artful Dodger Unrepentant



My favourite Daily Telegraph photo is headlined:

Duke's Son Defends Gardener And Nanny Accused Of Pilfering



Only the National Enquirer would have published this :

ALIEN SPACESHIP SUCKS OUT NANNY’S BRAIN DURING PHOTO SHOOT FOR CHARITY CLOTHES SHOP



This one's from Motoring Monthly:

FAMILY WAITS HAPPILY FOR ROADSIDE SERVICE
