Feb. 26, 1959 Lorain Journal Front Page

Here's the front page of the Lorain Journal from February 26, 1959 – fifty-four years ago today. Why am I posting this particular edition? Because it's the day I was born – and a few other Admiral King High School Class of 77 classmates as well. (Click on it for a larger, readable view.)

Unfortunately, it wasn't a particularly interesting day for local news. Sorry about that. There's one article about Cromwell Park that's kinda interesting, but only because you don't hear it mentioned very much these days. But there seems to be an abundance of international news.

Actually the most interesting thing to me was that Today's Chuckle was buried in with the columns of text, instead of appearing at the top of the masthead like it did later for many years.

Maybe the current Morning Journal's circulation problems would improve with a triumphant return of the Today's Chuckle feature! We sure could use a chuckle these days.

Happy Birthday Dan!

Ya know, Cromwell Steel would make for some great blog posts, if you can find much about it. I've done a little research on it but solid material is tough to come by.

Hi Drew! Thanks for the birthday wishes. You're right, information about Cromwell Steel and that whole area over there is hard to come by!
