When we pulled the carpet up in the back room a couple of years ago, rather than underlay we discovered sheets of newspaper dating from Nov/Dec 1959. I whipped a small selection away and stashed them in a cupboard until last week when I finally went through them! I clipped out the adverts I liked, scanned the smaller ones and photographed the gigantic ones. Many of the sheets were torn when they were lifted from the floorboards, and they were all discoloured and fairly fragile. I’ve done my best to make them presentable, but in some cases there wasn’t much I could do.
