Much like the post office timeline movie I posted last month, below we have the history of newspaper expansion across the USA. Interestingly, this movie is actually an extraction from a very well done interactive visualization of the Library of Congress’s newspaper database. You can even drill down to individual towns and see information about each newspaper. (via)

Interesting. For all I seem to hear lately about the decline of newspapers, the real peak seems to have happened in the 1920s, judging by the video.
