I found a ton of newspapers in the walls of the kitchen and den, and they weren’t in there haphazardly. They were first nailed in with a bit of lathe along the outer wall, then they were crumpled up to fill the space. I’m assuming the crumpling took solace as they nailed on the planks that made the wall.
I took some photos of some that were in better condition. I thought I would share some. Most you can read pretty well. I also saved a few for our archive. My mother in law thinks we should frame one for the wall in the kitchen. It could be done well.
