    I guess you’re scanning these on a flatbed scanner? Possibly putting a sheet of white paper or black paper behind the newspaper might reduce the amount of transfer showing up as brown smears coming through from the other side of the newspaper. Assuming you haven’t scanned the entire paper already…

      Had the whole thing scanned in one go on a big professional scanner. Some pages / sections are better than others. Might tinker in photoshop to see if anything can be cleaned up.

    Thirteen bob a pound, disgraceful! Thank heavens there’s no monopoly on benzine yet. As for “using the bogey of Socialism to get through fear votes which they cannot get in any other way”, I’m sure this disgusting and fraudulent technique will never gain traction among the solid men of these fair isles.

      or “the far-Left”, “the looney-Left”, ‘the Communist Scum”, “the Tree-Huggers”, “the Radicals”, “the Watermelons”, “the Haters and Wreckers”, “the Nannies” (Fran), …sticks and stones…How about the Visionaries?

    Monopolies are Ultimate Result of Capitalism and Private Enterprise

    Yep and it’s still true today. We see this happening around us all the time but take no notice because the name doesn’t change when a firm is bought out by another. Fletchers is a good example of a near monopoly – they pretty much own the entire construction industry in NZ.
