YOU CAN’T GET BETTER THAN THIS: I found this at Mule Skinner Antiques and I just can’t believe the sublime beauty of this object. The white hand lettering is magnificent on the original blue paint, punctuated by contrasting salmon colored wheels. This is an object of a bygone era, and a reminder today of “the daily newspaper,” an industry that is struggling to survive in a digital age. This is Americana at its best.
