The incredible shrinking newspaper!

The Missus was doing something with the Christmas decorations today and pulled out some old newspapers that had been cushioning the stuff for the last 30 years.  She handed them to me to look at before she recycled them.  I was struck by how much larger newspapers once were.  The 1981 Baltimore Sun is on the bottom with the current sized newspaper on top.
We can thank inflation for this turn of events.
It was interesting seeing car ads for new cars @ $5,700 each!
