http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/collections/rotogravures/index.html

Rating: 1, Awesome!

Description: During the World War I era (1914-18), leading newspapers took advantage of a new printing process that dramatically altered their ability to reproduce images. Rotogravure printing was used to create vivid new pictorial sections. Publishers that could afford to invest in the new technology saw sharp increases both in readership and advertising revenue. The images in this collection track American sentiment about the war in Europe and graphically document the people, places, and events important to the war. Events of the war are detailed alongside society news and advertisements touting products of the day, creating a pictorial record of both the war effort and life at home. Standard 10.5.3 11.4.5
