Take a 96 year old newspaper page that's foxed a deep tan with age, place it in the scanner, set the scanner for 300 dots per inch, activate the "De-screen" feature to eliminate "moire," enhance the graphic with a colorful title and border, and we have an attractive, historically valuable addition to the Hamilton Local History digital database! Such was the process I used on this delightfully historic real estate ad offering lots for sale by Charles G. Teunon at Hamilton's legendary Lakeside Park. It is a little more time consuming to dress up these historic ads, but after all, this ad has been couched within the darkening pages of the "Daily State Gazette" for 96 years!

Tom - I think you wanted to be notified if a blog has no graphic or picture with it, just a triangle and exclamation mark. This blog has that.
