    Thanks Wojtek, I will try and read it. Many thanks for trying. The poor quality was the same problem that I was having. I wish they where a little better quality.

    Thanks again Paul

    You'r welcome :)

    Yep, but it is a litle bit strange because other news papers on the site look better .Is the size of the file the only one you could download there?

    Yep, its a bit of a puzzle I couldnt find anything any bigger for this article. Later today I will have some more time and see if I can find a better one. I have some old orginal WWII news papers at home that my grandmother gave me a few years back. Just have not found a way to post them because they are so big. They wont fit on a normal scanner and two big for a copy machine. I dont think taking digital camera shots will work because of size versus readabilty thought I may try that.

    Any way thanks again Wojtek

    The original scan of the file is the most likely problem. Unfortunately, a lot of the old newspapers are scanned for headlines and pictures. The smaller text get garbled because of the resolution.
