Did You Know?


At Marco Santorelli's campaign speech where he countered his opponent's hecklers the placards carried by his supporters had photos of him.

In 1916, campaign placards in reality would contain a simplified wood engraved illustration of Santorelli taken from a photographic portrait.

While photographs were used in published media at them time, the process was too expensive to justify expendable media such as newspapers, fliers, electoral campaign media and the like.

The use of printed photographs was chiefly reserved for books, folios, graphic magazines and the like as such media was purchased for the long term, hence sales justified the cost of the process work..

In 1916, a photograph in a newspaper would only be found on an article pertaining to a special occasion.

The cost of producing campaign material was entirely borne by the campaign organizers themselves and such media became worthless following the election and would be disposed of.

Hence neither Marco Santorelli's nor Casey O'Donnell's campaign organizers would not be able to justify the cost of printing a photograph on a campaign placard. See more »
