This week, we’re going to post the front and back page of the Washington Times from the week of May 13th, 1912, exactly 101 years ago today. Why didn’t we do 100 years? Because May 13th, 1912 was a Monday and May 13, 1913 was a Tuesday. We wanted to do a full week. Click on the images to see a larger version and read the paper.
