One day Mr. Timothy Hughes pulled out some photographs to show me the first stage of renovations here where the majority of our papers are housed.  I say majority, because some travel around to various museums and government buildings, exhibits and showings.  But most are here, and “here” used to be a small workshop building that was gutted, extended and eventually became the anchor for the two warehouses.

I liked seeing the faces that are vaguely familiar (if a bit younger), and being reminded again that this is a close-knit, family group that has been working on all aspects of this endeavor for a long time.  Anyway, I thought the general collecting public might be interested to know that our website links much more than a few photographs from thirty years ago.  It’s well-stocked with professional videos ranging in topics from the history of this business, to insight into collecting and evaluating and caring for old newspapers.

So, browse a bit, and please let me know if there was any one in particular that caught your interest.  Once a month I am going to peer into the nooks and crannies of our website; check in to see what else I find.

Happy Friday!
