Charlotte Observer, October 1, 1942

67 years ago today, this is what the front page of the Charlotte Observer looked like. Given the great concern over the scrap metal shortage during World War II, the paper used its front page as a venue for appealing to citizens for help.

From the same issue, we’ve also included a political cartoon featuring the likes of Hitler, Mussolini, and Tojo, as well as the “real” front page of the Observer, which ran on the third page.
