A cool Hope Chest find
DW having just retired has been cleaning her STUFF out. The ~ 100 yr old Ed Roos Co.. solid cedar chest, no laminate, has been in bedroom with all kinds of play cloths/dresses the kids would dress up in. Kids grow don't care anymore, gave all to the littlest niece. I hadn't looked in this thing forever, with all the clothes removed there was newspaper on bottom, lifted up paper and there was bunch of cedar chips, Ok, helped with cedar scent.... Then I looked at the newspaper, there are lots pages, both the Baltimore Sun and Washington Herald, Dated December 1923, in quite good shape....
an example of an article in sports section of Sun.
