Let’s try something new.
We browsed the papers from Saturday February 22nd, 1919 to come up with some fun and interesting things to share with you. This is what we came across in The Evening Star on that date.
Origin of Keeping Up With the Joneses
Payne was active in the temperance movement his entire life and was a member of the Anti-Saloon League.
Keeping Up With the Joneses was a gag comic strip which ran from 1913 to 1938. Many people have since forgotten the comic, but the phrase remains as I’m sure you’re all aware.
