Alister & Paine Magazine visits Timothy Hughes Rare & Early Newspapers…

[1]A few weeks ago the staff of Alister & Paine Magazine [2] came to South Williamsport, PA to visit our historic newspapers archives and to interview Tim for the purpose of introducing their readership to the world of Rare & Early Newspapers [3].   It was fun getting to know such well-traveled individuals – introducing them to the hobby and hearing of their varied experiences. Sharing the love for collecting historic newspapers is always a pleasure… and based upon their reactions, “History continues to never be more fascinating than when read from the day it was first reported.
