    I found some Ww2 dated news papers at a local car boot sale and this was inside, the paper feels the same age as the news papers. Where these given out to hang up. Are they collectable please.

    Rockwell's Four Freedoms (Memory): American Treasures of the Library of Congress

    Taken from Franklin Roosevelt's 1941 speech to Congress, the "Four Freedoms" --Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worship, Freedom from Want, and Freedom from Fear--became a rallying point for the United States during WWII. Artist Norman Rockwell created four vignettes to illustrate the concepts. Rockwell intended to donate the paintings to the War Department, but after receiving no response, the painter offered them to the Saturday Evening Post, where they were first published on February 20, 1943. Popular reaction was overwhelming, and more than 25,000 readers requested full-color reproductions suitable for framing.

    Nice find I reckon.

    It was inside a News Chronicle dated June 5th 1944. Your right about framing it I think it would look good. Thanks for the reply
