Not Too Strange, But True Anyway

The Catholic Telegraph Photography Project is the work of Rick Barr, Multimedia Editor of The Catholic Telegraph of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, which is the oldest continuously-published Catholic diocesan newspaper in the United States. This project features items from the vast photo and illustrative archive of the periodical, giving the reader a glimpse into the rich Catholic heritage of one of the great cities of the Midwest. Our illustration at right, which appeared in the March 22, 1940 issue, is from a series that ran in the early- and mid-twentieth century entitled "Strange But True" by M J Murray. Click on the image for a closer look.
