Andy Banker of St. Louis' Fox 2 must have gone to the main city library and looked through old Globe Democrat archives to find an old front page having to do with the 1946 World Series. What he found almost takes my breath away. Not because the 1964 front page caught the Cardinals celebrating their series win over the Red Sox, but wow, the headline just below!
I was hoping the old Globe Democrat front pages may have been digitized into better images but the website information tells us that only a fraction of images are available electronically. That is why it looks like Banker took a picture of this front page while at the library. Glad he did. But I wonder who decided which archival images from the Globe were worth digitizing after finding this one. Heh.
And in case you're wondering after seeing Banker's picture, yes, the republicans did win the House majority in the 46 midterm election. After a democratically controlled congress for 14 years, voters expressed what many believed was a thumbs down referendum on Harry Truman and gave their votes to republicans.
