NEWSPAPER ARTICLE FOR QUEENS, NY 2-5-66


Date already listed; a little more card detail and the newspaper article included.






Where did you get this? The Long Island Star-Journal isn't on newspapers.com. I would love to check it out because it would be a "hometown" paper for me and would love to see an old-timey Queens-centric newspaper.


This link is one I have been using lately:  https://fultonhistory.com/Fulton.html




Once there I have just been typing search terms in the box at left.  I haven't really been paying attention to the individual paper titles to dig through them specifically.   The collection that is archived here has a number of New York papers but also from Idaho, North Carolina, Minnesota (where I found some obscure AWA cards in Thief River Falls of late), Massachusetts and some other New England states.  I can say if you have a wide search, it's great to see 500 results per page, although some are repetitive.  Let me know if you find anything good.  When I click on a result, I only have seen the individual page the term appears, and there must be a way to search the entire issues.
