Very interesting, I remember years ago when I was a boy we moved house and there was an old chest of drawers in the celler. The draws were all lined with old newspaper pages, some over a hundred years old. I got hours of pleasure reading them all.

As they say, "Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose." It's just a pity the punishment isn't up to much these days....
