Daily Mirror 24 May 1961 found under the carpet!

We’ve had the plasterer in our house for a few weeks and wish we’d moved out. If we had we wouldn’t have seen this issue of the Daily Mirror which was found under our dining room carpet (or more accurately the underlay!). Please forgive the poor nature of the photos, taken with my phone. The colour of the paper is pretty accurate here! The paper was very grimy and I was sad that we didn’t have a full copy of  the Perishers strip in this find!

    Reminds me of the time I decorated my bedroom in the mid to late ’70s. Under the lino (which was under the carpet) lay a load of old newspapers and magazines from the early ’60s. I kept an article about composer John Barry, which adorns my bedroom wall to this day.
