We are on a pretty significant renovation on a turn of the century home in Portland. Well, they didn't have ANY insulation in the home, so the big insulating truck with cellulose came in to do their job.

There was a slight issue at the double pocket door. Insulation went everywhere. What a mess. So I had to be the one to go outside and cut into the exterior 1x's and dig all this crap out. As I am vac'ing things up, I ca,e across am old newspaper, that had unfortunately been shredded mostly by the force of the insulation being blown in. What I could salvage is shown. It's too bad, it looked in decent shape beforehand.

Not nearly as historic, but I found these beer cans in the walls of a 60's ranch we gutted last month. Also found the original blueprints to the home hidden in a closet which turned out to be helpful.

I've been drunk on everyone of those except the blitz

Edit: maybe the blitz but I just don't remember

I have a ton of newspaper. I save all of it. Going to do a collage wall in the bar of my dream home one day.

I found some hand written poetry from a guy named Robert Shaw too. I swore up and down he was a famous poet but I could never find anything about him. Cool stuff nevertheless..
