Fake New Year’s Eve 1916

[“New York Rejects a Fake New Year’s. Apathy Marks the Slim Crowds That Gather for a Cold-Storage Celebration. Hotel Men Are Dejected. With Three Days in Which to Gather a Harvest Their Returns Are Less Than on One ‘Regular’ Day.” The New York Times, January 2, 1917.]

My favorite part of that lengthy headline: “Hotel Men Are Dejected.” But still: Happy New Year.
