  1. Joe–I thought you meant it was recently found in some attic or warehouse Down Under!

    That thing is huge! Big enough to share half with a soap ad.

    • I wish it was recently found.
      It was part of an article on How Australia Uses Paper to Build Up Big Business. “Ordinarily the stand runs for a split week, but the photograph shows the entire space taken for a three day showing, using two 24-sheets and a three for the current show and four ones for coming attractions.”
      Apparently, it was changed at a cost of $18.36 which includes the original cost of the paper and the import duty.
