Newspaper Museum Show
I would like to see more old but local Long Island newspapers on the The Great War, WW1. Also I’d be interested in watching a video or documentary that focuses on one event from that newspaper, like that new movie 1917, which was loosely based or rather inspired by the director, Sam Mendes’ grandfather Alfred. That movie may win best picture this year. I love looking at the Classified sections of those old newspapers from that time period, not just the front page. Most people would just throw away newspapers from that time period, or wouldn’t preserve them properly, they are so rare. Even Sotheby’s or Christie’s manuscript department would auction off old newspapers for thousands of dollars depending on its condition.
Also, maybe a little more information about how those old newspapers were actually made. From what I understand, its a completely different process now?
