The roar of the greasepaint...

The New York Times published a fascinating piece about the sound levels of Manhattan in the 1920s - clearly things were truly roaring in the Twenties. I'll be curious to see, er, hear how loud or quiet San Francisco is in comparison. We've made substantial strides in alleviate noise pollution over the years. I'd like to see a study done in dust abatement. This comes to mind as I draw my finger across the desk at which I'm typing this post. From the Times: Noise circa 1929
