In this section you will find digital copies of old newspaper clippings. Many of these were given to me by Dooley Wilson, copied from his scrapbook. Others were mailed to me by generous people of New Zealand who responded to my request for information about my boat. As such, most of these were sent to me as photocopies of old newspapers. Even the technology of scanning and printing has changed a lot since these were sent to me. In short these are copies of old copies of old newsprint. I’m still working on how best to preserve and display them here. As per normal, more will be added as time permits.
Displayed below you will find photos of articles which will include a link to a PDF file so that they may be enlarged for further study. Some of these will need to be rotated to display correctly on your screen. This will be part of the controls on your viewer. If you don’t have a PDF viewer installed you will need to download one.
