Danny’s Den and the Berks County Record…

I was sent this image a few months ago by a reader. The picture/content is interesting in itself, a relic of the 50s. However I noticed that it wasn’t from the standard Reading Eagle. It looks like there was some sort of weekly paper called the Berks County Record? It was formerly called the Reading Record before 1959. Does anyone have any information on this paper and/or how I might go about finding copies of it? It appears it was an active paper from the mid 50s until the 70s. On a separate note does anyone remember watching Danny’s Den on WEEU TV?

Born and raised in Berks, I am fascinated by the design, architecture, culture & style of the 20th century. I started this website to research and build a collection of the places, things and stories I have heard about my entire life. Read more here.
