When The Sun Was Here

Wow. While gone over the weekend, I missed this post from Marie who reads to us from a 40 year-old copy of the long defunct Springfield Sun newspaper. I remember that paper. Wasn’t it delivered by paperboys (no, girls didn’t do that back then) with orange paper bags? I seem to remember that. Like Marie, I remember the big Sun ad on the side of the building across the tracks from the train station downtown. I’m thinking The Sun was actually headquartered in that building (now remodeled and part of Isringhausen Imports).

Old newspapers are so interesting. They’re a portal into the past.
