The New York Times Time Machine

I recently discovered that archives of the New York Times are available online if you're a subscriber. It's the coolest thing. Just for the heck of it, I started looking at the front page for my birthday each year, starting in 1920. Some super interesting stuff and a lot of items that made me feel like nothing ever really changes.
  1. 1920. The 19th Amendment had gotten the required number of states on board. The suffragists themselves were not invited to this.
  2. 1928. The most interesting part of this to me is the "talking movie" documenting the event.
  3. 1929. Go Mrs. Thaden! Amelia Earhart participated in the race too and she's quoted later in the article.
  4. 1930. This is the first year there's a photo on the front page.
  5. 1935.
  6. 1939. This is an intense headline.
  7. 1940. London is amazing. 🇬🇧
  8. 1944. I love this one. How often do you see the word "joyous" in a newspaper headline?
  9. 1953. By this point the word "red" is all over the place.
  10. 1956. Eerily familiar these days.
  11. 1960.
  12. 1964. Southern Democrats jumping ship.
  13. 1966.
  14. 1967. #science!
  15. 1969. Not sure this went all that well.
  16. 1970. 50th anniversary of that ratification proclamation that women weren't invited to.
  17. 1971. Go, Captain Schimmel!
  18. 1972.
  19. Also 1972.
  20. 1973.
  21. 1974. I don't know much about him but I think he may not have been a great guy.
  22. 1980. This is my actual birthday but, rather unfairly, my birth didn't make the front page of the New York Times.
