No Irish need apply

Thinking about my Irish roots and all of the racism here in Georgia, USA reminds me of racism in the past.

Published in 1916. One in a series reviewing other trades:

Newspaper in miniature

Found this miniature diorama in Facebook (Diorama Dreams).

An iconic photo at the end of WWII is captured along with a front page of the Youngstown Vindicator.

I bet nearly everyone in Youngstown, Ohio, saved this front page!

According to Wikipedia, The Vindicator, as it’s now know has a daily circulation of 62,100 and 87,000 on Sunday.

And hey, look at this. The actual front page!



MLK keepsake edition


On the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s assassination, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution publishes its 12-page keepsake edition with reprints of original columns, front pages, and photos.

Proud to say that NewsPAPERS still do these kinds of things, and do it well.

I wonder 50 years from now will there be a printed 100th-anniversary keepsake edition, or will it just be slideshows on the interwebs?

Thanks to my good friends over at the Newseum, here are a handful of front pages with anniversary coverage.
