In honor of the beginning of the Newsboys Strike of 1899, I’ve added new first-hand newspaper articles to City Hall Park!

The Evening Post had interesting views on the strike, because—as they mention in an article about strike leadership—some of the newsboys were writing copy themselves and giving it to the newspaper offices to publish. (That same leadership article does not paint “Kid” Blink in a positive light…) The Post articles also back up one or two early events that are reported on only in one other newspaper, the Tribune.
