60 years ago today

One of the most famous photos in Americans Presidential elections. November 3,1948 Harry Truman won the Presidency much to the surprise of pollsters.The heavily Republican Chicago Tribune printed its first edition a little ahead of actual results. At a St. Louis train station the paper was handed to Truman, who posed with it and said "That ain't the way I head it!".
