I love old newspapers. The look, the feel, the news - of course - the ads, the unexpected finds.
Newspapers published on a particularly historic day are all the more interesting - the older the event, there are often more innaccuracies in the first stories, and if you have a few days worth of the same paper, you can see how the story develops.
Today is the 70th anniversary of D-Day, June 6, 1944.
I happily share some images from a June 6, 1944 (Final Evening Edition) issue of the Tulsa World in my collection. Bold Headlines. Breaking News. Statemets from the President. Cheap Suits. Rationed Cigarettes.
