Breaking News



Even 350 years ago, newspapers were an important part of sharing information. Just like today, people wanted to get the latest reports on what was happening in their own communities as well as international news, gossip, and even tabloid stories. People even drank coffee while getting their morning news; coffeeshops often subscribed to newspapers that customers could read and were popular places to meet.
