What was going on in Amsterdam in 1918?
The Historic Amsterdam League is pleased to once again offer an original 12 month wall- size (11″ x 17″) calendar for the coming year, Amsterdam Icons 2018, the seventh in our annual calendar series. Amsterdam Icons 2018 returns to 1918, to the events and challenges that faced Amsterdamianians a century ago, both overseas and at home, in the climatic year of the First World War. Through color and classic B&W photo collage illustrations and expanded monthly and centerfold text, Icons 2018 presents the reality of wartime - Liberty Bond campaigns, supporting service organizations, combating food and fuel shortages, the great personal sacrifices made to end the “Great War” – and events and questions brought directly to the local and personal level – the great influenza pandemic, the “wet vs dry” debate, the triumph and failure of “modern” technology. Scattered throughout the monthly date listings, in addition to the usual holidays and observances, are important, entertaining, and often little known dates from local history – the first local suffragette meeting, the death of Stephen Sanford, the last issue of the Amsterdam Morning Sentinel…
