Thanks for the suggestion about the vintage newspapers - I will take a look!

I would suspect that any library with actual, physical newspapers that old would not wish to get rid of them.

However, many libraries (including mine) will have such newspapers available digitally and/or microfilm.  You could print out front pages, ads, etc. and have them blown up to newspaper size.

A quick search online for "vintage newspaper" brings up many articles of clothing, but also newspapers for as little as five dollars.  I cannot vouch for their authenticity.

Is anyone willing to get rid of old newspapers, or does anyone know where we can buy some for a reasonable amount of money?
