Courthouse Cracks -- April Fool's Day, 1932

"No, the courthouse cracks aren't this big yet. This was concocted by a waggish Journal photographer and an equally waggish Journal artist as an April fool joke on the picture page editor and here it is passed along to the defenseless reader. It is certain that one reader — Architect Ross — won't think it funny. If it will serve as a somewhat belated warning against April fool pranksters it will have served its purpose." [The Milwaukee Journal - Apr 1, 1932]
