This may be more accurately titled ‘Last Week in 1956’ but we’ll just get on this scooter and ride, shall we?
Years ago while cleaning I came across a newspaper, a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, from 1956. My grandma (presumably) was the one that saved it, and why she saved it I have no idea. Maybe she knew someone in one of the stories, maybe it was meant to be thrown out and never was. I’ve held onto it for a few years of my own and thought I’d finally put the darn thing up on the blog, as it’s dated July 12th. Timely, except for the 58 year gap part.
Please read the advice given in this last picture. It’s a hoot.
I don’t know if I’ll put more pictures up, but fear not. If you see something that catches your eye, you can do a search for it on the Journal Sentinel website using the Historic Archive Search.
I’m just over here wishing I could pop into that Gimbels 3-Day Sale 58 years too late.
See you later!
