There are times when pictures are indeed worth a thousand words. Today I am going to let the pictures speak for themselves. These are images from a newspaper printed in New Canaan and later Stamford, Connecticut, in the 1930s. These particular issues date from 1939. I found the “weather reports” particularly inventive and powerful. The paper was the Connecticut Nutmeg and can be read in our Research Center.
Masthead with another weather “report.”
A political weather report.
A visual comment about the 1939 Olympics, held in Berlin.
I agree. And at present I am reading Eric Larson’s book about American diplomats in Hitler’s Germany before 1939, so it is especially interesting to me.
Is the author / artist Heywood Broun or his son Heywood Hale Broun?
It is Heywood Broun the elder.
