Littlehampton man uncovers 42-year-old Evening Argus at Ford car boot sale
4:20pm Wednesday 31st July 2013 in News
This plucky bargain-hunter inadvertently bought a blast from the past at a local car boot sale.
Duncan Carter, from East Preston near Littlehampton, snapped up an old picture frame for his mother at a boot sale in Ford.
But hidden inside the frame was a copy of the Evening Argus from March 15, 1971.
The historic paper was in good condition and was priced at twoand- a-half pence – or a sixpence.
The front page featured national news, including an explosion in London’s docklands and an appeal for a murder suspect.
On the back, a report described how the Southern Football League was under threat due to re-formatting, while Willie Irvine and Bobby Smith were reported to be missing an Albion away trip to Tranmere Rovers’ Prenton Park.
