1960 Vintage Newspaper

Today is the eve of my birthday, well here in U.S but it is my actual birthday in Manila. I've been receiving greetings from family and friends which really is a delight. Reminds me I am rich with wonderful people in my life. I am getting old, but not as old as this vintage newspaper we got from our church friends.


They invited us to their home because they had old books to give away. When talking about books, hubby is like a little boy in a candy store!

My goodness! I've never seen Prince Charles this young!


 Included in the collection of books was this vintage The Arizona Daily Star newspaper that dated back 1960 with the issue of Prince Andrew coming on the way into the royal family who was the very first child born to a reigning monarch in 103 years since Queen Victoria's Princess Beatrice.


and with another article about an article of Major Diaz Lanz who turned against Fidel Castro.


Reading an old newspaper that was written way before I was born was so cool! It instantly brought me back to times that I have never seen.


It was quite entertaining and I learned a little about history at the same time.


I am not a pro in antiques or vintage stuff but I am still trying to find out if this has a value or none, or we if we can sell it or what. But for the meantime, I'm just gonna enjoy it and do a little more time traveling.

Do you know anything about it? I would surely love to know. I would really appreciate it:)
