Today -100: August 22, 1911: Of Welsh pogroms and concrete wars

Anti-Jewish rioting in Newport, Wales, with many shops destroyed. Unclear why.

Headline of the Day -100: “To War on Concrete.” The Greater New York Brickmakers’ Association of the Hudson Valley has declared war on concrete, claiming it’s not as fireproof as brick.
