Looking for Newspaper GIFs/Backgrounds

Hello.

I'm working on a desktop publishing project for my family. I've been trying to find, without much success, a web site which will have GIFs, BMPs or backgrounds of old newspapers, you know, those light-brownish colored things one may have in their attic. I wish to use these as a background for other objects to be overlayed onto, family photos, photos of famous people, even other newspaper-like objects telling a smal story of a family member at the point in time where the photos was taken.

I have searched and searched the Internet.

Has anybody come accross a site or sites that may have just what I'm looking for?

They did help a bit Sunray. I have been to a few of those sites using the Google search you suggested here.

What I *did* find interesting was a site whereby I can get front pages from people's birthdays!

Let me look at SkyKnight's site and see what it's got.

I didn't see any old newspapers at the site you suggested SkyKnight.

These are difficult things to come across I guess.
