Reading the News
Back in the previous century the News was spread through newspapers. Images of people actually reading the news are so sparse nowadays we thought we’d share some of them with you today. Thera are lot of images to be found , we chose the ones with headlines on the death of important people. It’s hard to find such an image on Richard Nixon on the internet. But we did trace a lot of headlines of Nixon resigning as president, guess that is the same as dying, in the press.
