Century-old paper returned to the Maitland Mercury

From the Maitland Mercury report:
A Louth Park home has revealed a secret hidden away for nearly a century beneath the floor coverings.
One of the sheets of newspaper that had been laid as insulation under lino, is from The Maitland Daily Mercury, October 7, 1918.
Others were from May 7 and July 9, 1921.
Yellow and a little torn in places, the 1918 paper makes interesting reading, particularly the advertisements.
