Historical Photos - Making History
« on: May 10, 2018, 10:20:04 AM »
Hi Gang,
These are pictures of newsstands, etc. that transpired at an important moment in history.
You will see what I mean as you see them.

           1                     2                      3                      4

#1 - 1938-depression
After a few years of better financial numbers the USA went into a recession in 1938 which pushed unemployment rates to rise back to 19%.  Scenes like this, common since the start of the depression continued.


You can see pictures of NYC in the 30s and 40s at this link:

And pictures of 'Hoovervilles' during the Depression at this link:

#2 - 1939-Canada-war declared
At a Montreal newsstand 1939, when WW2 was declared. Unlike the first WW, when Canada was automatically entered the war with Britain's declaration, the government of Canada issued its own independent declaration shortly after the British one.

#3 - 1940-London Blitz by George Rodger

Starting on the afternoon of September 7, 1940, German planes would bomb London in an attempt to demoralize the population and force the British to come to terms.

I don't buy comics at the shop or conventions anymore.  All my comics these days are in the form of scans like those shared here on DCM.  But since last December 2017 I've been digging more into the history of comics and just lately into the history of fandom and retailers.

I have heard of the Arthur Church/Mile High Pedigree and the Lamont Larson Collection but until today I'd never heard of the Okajima Pedigree.  These books were bought by a young lady from at least August 27th 1943 to March 29th 1945.  You can read about ALL it here.

The reason I bring it up here in this particular topic on DCM is these books were bought in Arizona’s Gila River Japanese Incarceration Camp.  Pictures of this and other Japanese Incarceration camps can be seen above is pictures #6 to 13.

Of the pedigree stories this is easily my favourite.

Hi Gang,
Here's another bunch of pictures that illustrate some important moments in world history.

What it says: What to Do — What Not to Do
        This war is not like any other. It may reach your street -- your home -- at any moment. You may be fighting in this war tomorrow, or next week, or next month. Your government asks of you one simple thing, but one very important thing ... Learn and remember what to do if enemy planes and bombs come.

#12 - 1961-Ham the Space Chimp
(Original Caption) A space chimp posing to camera after a successful mission to space, 1961.

"On the morning of January 31, 1961, in south Florida, a 5-year-old chimpanzee — dubbed "Ham" by his handlers — ate a breakfast of baby cereal, condensed milk, vitamins and half an egg. Then the unassuming 37-pound primate went out and made aeronautic history: Aboard a NASA space capsule, traveling thousands of miles an hour almost 160 miles above the Earth, he became the first chimp in space."  -Life Magazine
