Yesterday’s Broadsides – From The Valmadonna Trust Library – Still Gripping Today

Broadsides were never meant to survive. Defined as a single printed sheet posted in public, broadsides convey immediate information about a vast number of subjects: changes in the law, upcoming weddings or bnai mitzvot, the details of a death or a funeral, the arrival of the circus, just to name a few.
