Editorial, 1926

This editorial ran in the Plain Dealer on June 23, 1926 prior to dedication ceremony for the Hilliard Road Bridge. The article describes a romanticized version of human progress and places the Hilliard Road Bridge among the pinnacles of human achievement. This is an interesting insight into the style of political rhetoric of the early twentieth century. Would an article like this be found in newspapers today? How has the style of American politics changed over the course of the twentieth century?
