Folding Newsstand (SOLD)

The Sun was a newspaper founded in New York City in 1833 and became the first newspaper to report crimes and personal events. Most articles prior to this related to politics, book and theater reviews. The Sun was the first paper to hire reporters to seek out stories. The paper was quick to realize that these stories appealed to the working class who were now literate, thereby creating a market for selling newspapers, hence the newsstands and newsboys subsequently appeared on the streets of New York.
