“No Unpleasant Aftertaste”

Rolled up issues of The Springfield Union, from June and July of 1951. We pulled them out of the walls of my former kitchen after it got demolished last week. Most were water damaged or possibly covered with mouse poop, so I took a few photos and trashed ’em. There are a few good Communist era headlines, some local stuff, and a couple of good ads.
