Street Smarts
October 29, 1951 — The Miami Daily News

The Mossadegh Project | October 27, 2015      

The Miami Daily News, the oldest newspaper in Miami, Florida, cracks wise in this compact 1951 editorial.


Demonstrators in Tehran, Iran tear down street signs marking Avenue Churchill [Churchill Avenue] as news arrives of the Conservatives’ victory in the British election. Avenue Churchill was named in honor of Britain’s wartime prime minister [Winston Churchill] during the 1943 Big Three conference.

About the only significance of this is that if there had been an Alley Attlee, [Premier Clement Attlee] it would have happened long ago.
