We are doing some remodeling and as the demolition progresses, we found a few cool items hidden in walls.
So far, we uncovered some newspaper pieces from 1923 and a half dozen baseball cards from the 60s and 70s.
These are some of the more interesting sections of the newspapers. I love the hand drawn ad headlines, the car prices, the office rents, and the situations wanted.
These two baseball cards were the oldest of the seven that were found. Most of them are worth between $0.50 and $3.99 according to the internet.
As Marco pointed out, with the dating of the newspaper, everyone who read that paper or had anything to do with its creation is probably long gone. It’s pretty neat thinking of the families and people who previously lived in this weird little house of ours and the evidence they left hidden in the walls.
