Twin Brothers

Today's picture shows twin brothers who sell newspapers. The picture is from 1909, and was taken in Hartford, Connecticut.


  1. Looks like they all have the same nose.

  2. I wonder what the headlins were.

  3. Grandpa, You got me thinking of what the headlines might be. The way they are dressed I'd say it's maybe Jan or Feb 1909, (maybe March). I looked up some headlines from around that time... "Columbia recognizes the independance of Panama", "The last US troops leave Cuba after being there since the Spanish-American war", "Einar Dessau uses a short wave radio transmitter, becoming the first radio broadcaster". Born in Jan and Feb 1909... Barry Goldwater, Victor Borge, Carmen Miranda, Dean Rusk, Max Baer, Hugh Beaumont. ( I jut picked out the names I recognized).
