It's unlikely that they were originally intended to be the archives of The Daily Punctilio, a newspaper which wouldn't appear for another three volumes; going back and identifying them as such was, I think, a particularly whimsical connection for the U.A. to draw, almost more like a joke on the very act of retroactive continuity than a sincere connection. As to why, in-universe, they were there? Mismanagement by a town under Sir's effective authority, perhaps, or an attempt at hiding in plain sight.
The hiding in plain sight explanation was I thought what TUA said was going on. I have some issues with this, because what if it rains??? Then the archives will be ruined. Unless LSLM was in the middle of a desert, but I'm pretty sure that's untrue because it is surrounded by a "lovely" forest. The only explanation I can think of is everyone knows how useless TDP is, so they are just littering by putting their old newspapers along the road of a ghost town. But did TDP used to be a useful newspaper?
Faith is being sure about what we hope for, being convinced about things we do not see. Hebrews 11:1 For God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16

TDP was once a safe haven for good VFD agents. Prior to the Olaf Schism, when Jacques and Lemony worked there undercover, they sent secret and non-secret messages to every organization through the TDP pages. I think this is very evident in Jacques's letter to Lemony on LSTUA. And in TBL, Lemony makes it clear that there were too many VFD agents infiltrated into TDP. Including R worked there before her mother died. So TDP copies of this era are very valuable.
