Girl Finds Old Box In Grandpa’s Closet

While rummaging through their grandfather’s house, Imgur user doggetofftheqcekmty stumbled across quite the find – a small, hidden wooden box filled with newspaper clippings from monumental events dating back to 1880. If you’d like to view these in high-res

“It doesn’t completely close. It’s not a very good box.”

“High school diplomas of Grandpa, Great Grandpa, and Great Uncle. Neat, but only to my family.”

“But what’s this? Those drawers come out?!”

“Jack-Frikin-Pot!”


“Highlights in no particular order. The grandparents probably saved the later ones, but some are probably from Grandpa’s parent’s collection.”

“Moon landing – 1969”

“Moon landing, plus Kennedy news.”

“More moon landing.”

“A princess becomes a queen – 1953”

“The death of Lincoln. Technically 1865. This is either a reprint or a repring of a reprint. You can tell by the Extra 8:10 a.m. headline. Max age, 1880.”

“Psychology from 1977.”

“End of WWII – 1945”

“American bicentennial 7/4/1976”

“Death of Kennedy”

“End of WWII. Bonus – this newspaper doesn’t exist any more.”

“The legitimately oldest paper in the box – 1891.”

“End of WWI – 1918”

“Death of Roosevelt – 1919”

“Eisenhower elected – 1952.”

“Death of President McKinley – 1901. Not sure why name is spelled that way.

Hope you enjoyed this small look into the past!”
