A Look Back: Stories from the Attic


Adult and Senior / Lifelong Learning -
Senior Program 2020-2021

Did you know that people used to use stacks of newspaper as insulation in the house walls?! Several years ago a friend of our instructor knew of some remodelling that was being done at a family members house. During that project, they found a bunch of newspapers from the 1940’s tucked in the walls of the attic! This class will feature a virtual walk back in time. We will look at the headlines of the day; what was being advertised in those days; and what the ever popular “comics” section looked like! Amateur historian, Jay Grammond will weave these pieces together to take you on a virtual walk back in time.

Jay Grammond

Jay Grammond is a Professional Photographer and Amateur Historian. He was thrilled when he inherited this stack of old newspapers, and marveled at the stories within the pages! As a child in the 1970’s, he actually clipped articles of interest out of newspapers to keep in a scrapbook, so this seemed meant to be.
