▼ News-Register 1936 Flood Special Edition Handbill

Flood waters forced Wheeling News-Register staff to abandon equipment for higher ground at their offices on 1500 Main Street. The intrepid reporters used a small proof press to hand-set a crude but effective "flood supplement."

This example was donated to the library archives by Margaret Brennan.
