Wonderful tip for the day, V.J. I was able to view & save advertisements from the 1930's - 1970 on my unlces' REDA HARDWARE store -- it will be a great surprise for some 1st cousins; and my best friend will truly be surprised with articles found about his Honor Roll achievements (Jr. High!) & his trip to Grandma's when he was two yrs. of age!

That is really neat!
Wish they'd made the free period a bit longer though.
