When doing some genealogy research on my great-grandmother, who was the first Chief Cook of the White House, I stumbled across this old article from the Feb 8th, 1920 edition of the New York Tribune; I downloaded the archival quality version from the Library of Congress and reposted it on Internet Archive as a easier-to-download standard jpeg. A fascinating bit of early sci-fi, presented as speculative science, back when Heinlein was playing hooky and Asimov was still in the cradle:

Love the Nichola Tesla quote on the fair right column! And the illustration of the martians (or venusians) is absolutely wonderful--I could only believe they re-purposed a few fairy-tale dwarf/pixie/goblin illustrations and popped 'em on the moon.

Great find, TiAm.
