Paging former newspaper carriers! NPR wants photos of you on the job as a kid

NPR’s “All Things Considered” is doing a piece this week on young newspaper carriers and asking former paperboys/girls to post their photos on Instagram with the #nprpaper hashtag. That’s NPR newsman Jamie McIntyre’s father – not Jamie, as my first version said – with his Houston Chronicle bag in the photo below. (I delivered the Beloit (Wis.) Daily News for three years and bought a Polaroid Swinger with my earnings, but never snapped a photo of my bike and the huge baskets that held my 70-plus papers.)
