The exhibition features a variety of newspapers from the Museum's collection. The papers span from a facsimile of the first newspaper published in San Diego in 1851 to papers from the 1920s. The papers cover important events that happened in San Diego and events that impacted the world as they were reported in San Diego newspapers. From the sinking of the Titanic to a list of letters left in the post office in 1851, the newspaper collection gives a unique glimpse into the everyday workings of San Diego's past.
