Little Nemo

Aug. 14, 1910: Although the content has changed dramatically, the selection of Sunday newspaper features hasn’t changed much in a century: There was an emphasis on the performing and visual arts, books, and things for children, like the comics pages. Few of the comics are familiar today, but one enduring strip (despite its painfully racist elements) is Winsor McCay’s beautifully drawn “Little Nemo in Slumberland.”

On the jump, continuing coverage of labor: The attempted bombing of streetcar facilities during a strike in Columbus, Ohio, and The Times Sunday workers’ page. Under Gen. Harrison Gray Otis, The Times of this era drew a sharp distinction, casting itself as an enemy of unions and a friend and ally of workers.  The bombing of the Los Angeles Times is a month and a half away.
