L.A. Warned on Water

Sept. 1, 1949, Mirror

Sept. 1, 1949: The early days of the Mirror, when it was a tabloid.

Sept. 1, 1949, Paul Coates
I thought it would be fun to dip into the 1949 editions of the Mirror, if only briefly. At that time, Paul Coates was mostly covering nightclubs and had yet to become the columnist we know from the 1950s. I don't plan to run many of these columns because they are fairly dated, but I figured a week's worth would offer an interesting insight on a writer in progress.
