Friday Finds: Newspaper Edition

Friday Finds
Over the past few days, we’ve been gutting the next batch of houses, starting with 2400. As we peeled back plywood and carpet, we found a few sheets of newspaper dating from November 14, 1937.


In 1937 in Baltimore, socks were $0.27 per pair, a dining room furniture set was $34.95 and a radio was $49.00. I doubt you’d be able to find a dining room set that cheap these days, but a new AM/FM radio will only set you back about 10 bucks. A vintage 1938 RCA like the one advertised above, on the other hand, might fetch a few hundred dollars at auction.
Another section of the paper was stuck to the floorboards. This section had a riveting article all about milk in the city of Baltimore (not kidding). The article states that 20,000 milk bottles were lost per day in Baltimore. What.
