Selling the Grit

Record #:
Bryan Salter worked for the Grit newspaper as a paperboy during his youth. Popular in southern states, the newspaper hired teens and pre-teens to deliver the paper to local residents once a week. Salter recalls various local teens employed by the paper; many of their customers were relatives or family friends. Eventually, the newspapers circulation declined and today it is no longer delivered to a subscriber base.
