The Palm Beach Post has a great new feature on their website that allows you to look at past issues of their newspaper right online like looking through microfiche at the library. They have used a service provided by Google to scan in and archive electronic version of all their past issues. I recently did a search of Singer Island Real Estate. Take a look at what I found.

Today you can view the news online or have it delivered to you home. Letters to the Editor are now more along the lines of blogs on personal websites. Joe Costa used to write a newsletter for Singer Island called Singer Island Reel Happenings. It has been mentioned in the Palm Beach Post many many years ago.
What a fascinating thing to find!
