Manville News, August 1st, 1941

Woah! Another issue of the digital old Manville News. August 1st, 1941. This issue includes the announcement of Democrat, Charles Golchewski’s bid for re-election for Councilman, and a fantastic little article about a local artist named Jean Ryhs, who painted a watercolor painting called “Alley in Manville” that some local folks thought offensive and had it removed from a local exhibition. The painting, described as “a green shack, a red shack, a clothesline, and a wall” later got national attention over the controversy. I did a little prowling around on the internet, but could not find an example of the painting… I would really love to see this. This is another consecutive issue… enjoy. Manville News 08-01-1941
