Remember When: April Fool's Day Edition
April 1, 2010 - Bill Ackerbauer
On one of my recent forays into the dank depths of The Leader-Herald's photography archives, I stumbled across a negative dated April 1, 1958, that was labeled "April Fool's Day Picture." It appears someone on the staff here at that time decided to have some fun and paste a few random images onto a photo of North Main Street in Gloversville. Have a look; it shouldn't be too hard to tell what's real and what's not.
In case you're wondering, we do not play any April Fool's Day pranks in our newspaper, the management having learned long ago that such shenaningans are not worth the potential confusion, hassles and headache they can provoke. This blog might be the exception, however. Most readers can tell when I'm pulling their leg, as I did a year ago on April Fool's Day in my blog post about my "long-lost relative" who had once worked down south as a bourbon taster, goat wrangler and unicycle repairman. Good old Uncle Jim!

(The Leader-Herald/Abe Rillphules) Who could forget April 1, 1958, the day when the Army released weather balloons over Gloversville while cattle stampeded along North Main Street?
