In the pre-radio days, we would have had the choice of the Herald, the
Traveler, the Afternoon Record, the Daily Advertiser, the Transcript,
and the Post in addition to the Globe and the Evening Globe -- not to
mention the Quincy Patriot-Ledger, the Framingham Evening News, the
Waltham Daily Tribune, the Lynn Daily Evening Item, the Salem Evening
News, and several dozen other papers from nearby communities.

All of these papers survived into the radio age, and all but the
Transcript and the Post survive in some form today.  (The Herald,
Traveler, Record, and Advertiser are all ancestors of today's Herald,
in addition to a paper that was .)
