Page of Pres­i­dents

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - STYLE -

The Page of Pres­i­dents was an ad­ver­tis­ing con­test pub­lished in the Arkansas Gazette on May 16, 1917. Each of the 27 U.S. pres­i­dents to that date was spon­sored by a Lit­tle Rock busi­ness. Each spon­sor’s ad block in­cluded at least one mis­spelled word.

To­day we might have bonus boo­boos. How many er­rors can you find? (An­swers be­low.)
