    Front and back of a full page - probably from a Sunday magazine format. More padding from beneath the linoleum. Anyone with good sense would have simply shoveled them into the dumpster along with the linoleum, but as a history buff and collector that wasn't really an option for me.

      Same with me! When we cleared out the shop they all went in the bonfire, despite my protests. I was able to save about 20.

      I need to go through these and try to decide what is really worth keeping and how to store the ones that are.

      Picking, My Dad stored them on a poster board with clear plastic & then stapled around the edge of the poster board. It work good cause I have a 1917 news paper that way..... Just a thought.....

      The guy at the framing store in town that i have had a few things framed by vacuum seals the item to a styrofoam posterboard. Takes out any wrinkles and prevents any curling or withering.

      Thanks for the tips. Posterboard and plastic wrap is kind of what I was thinking but I hadn't figured out the best way to keep it snug and in place.
