In the day there was a news stand on almost every corner of a major intersection. I sold the Sun from a newsstand at Lawrence and Sheridan S.W. corner, they were made out of tin, and folded up compactly with a big padlock on the outside.comic books, Magazines,The Chicago Scratch sheet.both editions. the papers were about a nickel and the scratch sheet was a dime.
