These speak for themselves, don't they? These are from the newspaper we found between the floorboards of the cabin we're dismantling.
The war took the headlines,
but local news continued on its gossipy way,
and people still shopped for all kinds of things: like washers.
Laundry still had to be done, even by bachelors,
and I would imagine that these baby chicks would have been a hot commodity in the days of rationing.
Political cartoons kept people entertained,
and Eleanor did her part to keep them inspired.
People still pursued their vices too!
Life went on, even when times were hard and things were scarce.
More photos of this old paper tomorrow.
