Wordless Wednesday: Found in the Paper!

My, That's a Big Rose!

I found this picture of my grandfather in the San Antonio Express newspaper from 12 Nov 1922.  Ah, the newspapers.  You never know what you're gonna find...

Photographer/Journalist Unknown, "Rose Has 63-Inch Stem," San Antonio Express, 12 Nov 1922, p. 6, col. 2; digital images, ( : accessed 28 Feb 2010), Historical Newspaper Collection.


  1. That's so neat, Caroline! What a find! Newspaper articles are my favorite "surprises".

  2. I love to poke around newspapers, too. I only wish there were more from the cities I am working on out on ancestry. Great find for you!

  3. Newspaper research is my favorite! I'm one of those wierd people who love microfilm. :)

  4. I love it when I find my ancestors in the newspapers. I haven't yet found a photograph, though. This photo that you've posted is wonderful. Lucky you!
