Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type


According to the Brisbane Sunday Mail:-

QuoteOn September 4, 1883 at 10 years old, Barney Flaherty was hired as the first paperboy ever, by the New York Sun. Also today (September 4), the United States celebrates Newspaper Carrier Day to honour Barney and all of the current newspaper carriers around the world.

I think their days are numbered.
