Newspaper editorial: Newspapers

Challenge #108 in the The Art Director series. Hosted by jezsik.
Challenge has finished
A well-respected writer of op-ed pieces is about to opine about the demise of the printed paper and needs a suitable image. This old dinosaur of a writer likes to wax nostalgic and so requires a nostalgic image that evokes feelings toward a paper. The image must be of a newspaper (including stacks of papers) or something newspaper-related (e.g. news-stand). We think he'd be happiest with a photo of a tow-heading boy waving a paper overhead and shouting "Extra, extra, read all about it!" but we doubt you'd find anything like that out there today. Give it your best shot!
