Blast From The Past

Speaking of George McEvoy, click

here

to see a vintage shot of the Sun-Sentinel/Fort Lauderdale News newsroom back in 1979. The shot, which for technical reasons I couldn't reproduce here, includes McEvoy, Fred Schulte, Dan Lovely, Dan Christensen, and Cal Deal. (It was Deal who illustrated the shot and whose website I'm linking).

I like the way they're all huddling around their telephones the way good reporters ought to (and those are all old-school, no-shit reporters in that shot). Unreal.
