Cover of The New York Times, February 5, 1974. Late City Edition. 15 Cents.

So, forty years ago tomorrow, the headlines covering today’s news focus on gas rationing in New Jersey, President Nixon offering a budget, and China renewing its Cultural Revolution.  Miners in Britain also voted overwhelmingly (81%!) to strike.

There’s also no URL telling me to check out the newspaper online and it cost only 15 cents.

February 4, 1974, was a pretty eventful day!
