So focused on war that you blew it.  ::)

100 years ago...YESTERDAY!



Not really focused on the war, I was out there searching for the very first printing of the cartoon strip itself.  The Chicago Tribune published it first, as you noted on November 24, 1918, but the damn newspaper wasn't on the Library of Congress list of newspapers for that particular date.  I had planned on posting the strip every Sunday, and I might yet if I can find a copyright free source.  But you were right, Doc.  The strip started on the 24th.  Thx for the Wiki article.

I wonder if they used the dog for explosives detection?

When I was on the Imperial War Museum website I saw a dog kind of like that one, watching some soldiers march by.  I wonder if it was following the photographer around?

I would bet it has been at least half a decade since I went to the movies... I may just have to look it up and see if "they shall not grow old" will be playing in my city.  Probably one of the only films in recent memory that I feel would be worth the price of admission...

Iv'e only been through part one- but it is really interesting footage.  It matches your topic as it is what happened right after WWI. 

I liked the footage as a whole.  But worth special mention is 17:15.  Brief footage of Christmas 1918 with trees (look- 100 years ago.  I finally got it right.)  ;)  I cannot imagine anybody being happy with those trees today (I'm heading out to crown land in the next week or two to find a tree that will likely resemble those.)  Also, I found 28:30 of interest.  If you have watched boardwalk empire, you will understand why.

Anyhow, part II will have to wait for tomorrow.  I do find the colourization of the old footage quite interesting. 

So- to conclude: 100 years ago the march toward WWII continued in earnest...
