The papers have arrived!

I do indeed have the entire month of August 1929.

There's also a packet of articles cut out of papers -  none of which have dates on them!!! What idiot did that, I'd like to know.

The papers are both disappointing and happy-making.

The seller had provided about 20 photos of the papers. I'd assumed that these photos were just *samples* of what was in the paper,s but what they actually were was *all* of what was in the papers.

But the papers themselves were pretty interesting - women were getting in trouble for wearing dresses without stockings, there was trouble between Arabs and Jews in Palestine, and there were murders and robberies just like there are today.

I'll be sharing news of August 1929 in future posts.
