Selling or delivering the newspaper is a rite of passage for many kids. In 1916 an unknown 12 year old used this cart to sell the Indianapolis News after school. As the evening paper, the News could “scoop” the morning Indianapolis Star by publishing current events first. These events had to occur after the Star was printed but before the News was printing deadline. Usually that meant news occurred during the morning or early afternoon. As readers began to rely more on television news, the Indianapolis News ceased publication 130 years after it started in 1999.
