New to me (probably been there for a while) but the first time I've ever seen that Google is apparently scanning in old news papers. Cool part is they also did OCR on it so it's searchable for computer or other topics. I had thought I found just an image earlier of a computer in an old classified ad but then started scrolling over and over and realized they scanned the entire paper lol.

They;ve been at it for quite awhile. I was reading one and it was a torn page. Someone put it back together with scotch tape. The OCR search feature still worked with that slightly-hacked tape-job. It made me wonder about the source of the newspaper since it was taped-up.
