A really interesting database of Old Newspapers

Papers Past.  It's run by the New Zealand national library, and it has newspapers from 1839-1945.  It's especially useful for the years that the NYT keeps behind the subsciption wall!

I played around with it a bit last night.  The advanced search works really well, and the text was readable.  I think I like it better than the NYT search, actually.  And hey, a wire report is a wire report, whether it's published by the Yanks or the Kiwis.....
