    I don't know how bragworthy this is, but I personally think it is just awesome!

    At work on Monday I found 7 copies of one of the first newspapers Toronto has ever had. They were all dated December 21, 1836, called The Royal Standard, priced at 4 pence each

    I looked and apparently they were only printed in 1836-1837. I think it is amazing to hold something that is almost 200 years old.....wow

    Oh yeah, I also found one that was dated 1917 from the States. It was advertising gramaphones lol.

    That's it for my brag, have a nice night everyone!

    That's super cool. You should totally bring one or two into a museum or something so everyone can enjoy them!

    Very cool.

    If you do try and keep them investigate how to store them. I found some papers in the attic from the 1940s and they were stored badly and I had to toss them.
