I came across a website with local newspapers from the late 1800s on it earlier this week.
It resulted in me going down a rabbit hole.
For starters, I've been reading reports of wrestling matches from way back. I'm not even sure if I am reading reports of real wrestling matches or they were worked bouts. All I know is the writers - whoever they were - reported on the bouts as if it was a genuine sport.
One of the articles I came across was about George Hackenschmidt retiring.
Other things I looked out for were articles of people with my surname and wondered whether they were related to me in any way.
One bloke - in an article I read - was a right bastard. Made me hope he wasn't a relation!
