  • I still believe that being a youth newspaper carrier was the best first job you could ever have growing up. I learned so much from that experience many of which I still use today. Great Picture.

  • In the late 1950s i used to help my cousin, John Barnard deliver Sunday papers. We had to get up at the crack of dawn to attend Sunday mass before starting the route. In addition to the regular subscribers, we sold papers along the way. We walked from the Missourian building west on Broadway to Perryville Rd then North to the end of Perryville rd pushing a wooden cart shouting, "Sunday papers, Post and Globe." It was a hike!
