Welcome my friends to today’s Bacon’s Show and Tell. This month we are highlighting something that is the oldest in your house. As you know, we have been doing a LOT of renovating here at the Hotel Thompson. Mom has an antique trunk that came from her mother’s mother – old huh? Well, mom explored inside of the trunk and found something older than daddy! Can you believe that?
Here is a newspaper from the Bangor Daily News dated Wednesday, January 2, 1963. Can you believe that? If you look close in the upper right hand corner you will even see the cost of the newspaper during this time – EIGHT CENTS! You might be asking yourself WHY would you have such a paper from such long ago? My Nana’s family is actually from Bangor, Maine. Small world huh?
And I told you this newspaper was older than my dad. It is by 4 days – snorts. My dad was born on Sunday, January 6, 1963. What a small world huh?
