Hell-of-old Bay Area newspapers

I was at the National Museum of Old Newspapers with “Post” in the Title in Washington, D.C., the other day when I came across these beauties from the Bay Area.

Almost makes you wish newspapers were still around, doesn’t it?

Some other good ones, after the jump:

(P.S. Oh, I guess the Oakland Post is still around.)

    The Oakland Post was among other things, the home of the murdered newsman Chauncey Bailey, whose killers are currently on trial in Oakland.

    Chauncey was old-school I guess. He believed journalism was about covering real stories that impact neighborhoods and the people who live in them.

    And he was killed for it.

    Wrap that around your neck and wear it while pedaling out for a beer and inspiration for your next post-journalism blog post.

    News papers are still around. Ever read the Guardian? They are covering the local impacting news in our community.
