We at the American Business History Center wish all our fans, readers, and donors a Happy New Year!
We love beautiful, nostalgic images. When we published our new book Bedtime Business Stories earlier this month, we left out the great color pictures in the original articles in order to keep the book’s price down. So we have provided all those pictures, in chapter order from the book, in this free downloadable PDF. Please take a look and enjoy the hundreds of pictures from the past.
We are pleased with the initial sales of the book. If you have read it, please consider writing a review on Amazon.
We are also very gratified by the progress we have made so far in our mission to increase interest in business history. During calendar 2021, our website generated about 174,000 page views by 103,000 users, up from 45,000 page views and 30,000 users in 2020.
Readership of our newsletter continues to grow, with last week’s issue being read 3,500 times, the most in our short history.
Thanks to our generous donors like you, we were also able to give out $7500 in our high school essay contest (the winning entries are on our website).
If you are interested in more free downloads, we continue to add new titles, often old business and history classic, to our free books download section.
Our short stories of business creation, success, and failure, as well as our ever-popular charts and data, will continue each week in 2022. Please share our website and newsletters with your friends and relatives.
So here is a toast to a great, healthy, productive 2022!
