Those Were the Days


This was the year the NY Times first used the slogan “All the News That’s Fit to Print,” while Edison was patenting the first really good movie camera.  Dracula was published and nighttime never became the same.  The pencil sharpener was invented.  How in the world did they do it before then?  Songs of the Year were “A Hot Time in the Old Town,” “Little Kinkies,” and “My Mother Was a Lady” (but she drifted).  Take your pick.
