This handsome Detroit Free Press newspaper apron is a reminder of the not so distant past when our news not only developed more slowly but was delivered not through the ether but to one’s door or sold at the news stand or street corner.

Have ties to the paper and what it symbolizes? Are you a blogger who appreciates the history of the craft? These original aprons are yet one more genre of collectible. This one celebrates the Detroit Free Press not only the newspaper’s role as a social, cultural, and political institution but an iconic historic institution.
