Whole Year Through: Millennial Star Covers, 1936

By: Ardis E. Parshall - February 17, 2017

(I hope so many images won’t make this load impossible slowly; I can split it into two or more posts if necessary.)

There is at least one picture here that is misidentified … that ought to send you hunting! Let us all know which covers you like, which surprise you, or anything else you notice.

  1. Well, that “His Majesty Edward VIII–Long May He Reign” didn’t last very long, did it? And George VI’s reign brought, sadly, neither peace nor prosperity.

  2. The Smith Memorial Building?

    I hadn’t realized the pioneers brought a photographer with them in 1847 to capture all the sagebrush in the valley … 🙂

    I like that the covers feature a variety of scenes (Native Americans seem to have been of special interest or curiosity).

  3. Well, the Cenotaph is misidentified as a grave: as far as I know, no one is buried there, let alone “all who gave their lives in the War.”

    I love the heroic statues of Joseph and Brigham, accompanied by underwhelming explanations. Joseph Smith: taught a code of health, once. Brigham Young: a magistrate in Scotland thought he was pretty smart. It’s like explaining Mount Rushmore as “Had dentures, liked macaroni, big stick, tall hat.”

  4. Well, the error I spotted was misidentifying the Masonic Hall in Nauvoo as the first home of the Relief Society — that was Joseph’s red brick store, which the editors of M* probably knew, without knowing what the store looked like.
