That's cool. I'd love to have originals of those historical moments. I used to browse around the BBC website, they have (or at least used to have) 'this date in history' articles. It was interesting to look up dates and read not only the 'current' news articles from it but also to appreciate the historical perspective of it. Studying the outcome of WWII is one thing; reading what the journalist wrote while V1 and V2 rockets were hitting London is something else indeed.
Yeh, they have cool ones on e-bay that I like to look at, never bought one yet though - here's a link:

and that's just the war related ones
