North Carolina Christian Advocate, Vol. 101 : January 5, 1956 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from North Carolina Christian Advocate, Vol. 101: January 5, 1956 In the early summer of 1942 we were dining one evening at the home of a friend when the blackout siren was sounded. Immediately all lights in the outside rooms were extinguished. As it was a balmy night we gathered at the open windows to watch the effect of the black-out in a city of myriad lights. The transformation was impressive. From the tenth ﬂoor window, the street seemed a well of darkness with eerie sounds rising from unseen persons. Then an air warden blew his whistle and called out that an apartment on the sixth floor was showing a light through the open door of an inner room. Then another whistle and another warning. And so on. It is a difficult task to attain a complete blackout in a city of multitudinous lights. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
