Check photography

In 1930, the first bank check photographing device patent was issued in the U.S. to its inventor, George Lewis McCarthy, who called it a Checkograph (No. 1,748,489). In 1927, the Eastman Kodak Co., Rochester, NY had commenced its commercial manufacture as the Recordak. The machine photographed checks onto 16mm motion picture film using a conveyor belt before they were returned to customers. It was subsequently developed to use 35mm film and also used in libraries for the purpose of making microfilm records, beginning with the New York Public Library (1935) photographing the New York Times of the WWI period. This solved difficulties in archive storage and use of newspapers, and the rapid deterioration of the newsprint original.

Birthday Party

A lady is throwing a party for her granddaughter, and had gone all out..... a caterer, band, and a hired clown. Just before the party started, two bums showed up looking for a handout. Feeling sorry for the bums, the woman told them that she would give them a meal if they will help chop some wood for her out back. Gratefully, they headed to the rear of the house.
The guests arrived, and all was going well with the children having a wonderful time. But the clown hadn't shown up. After a half and hour, the clown finally called to report that he was stuck in traffic, and would probably not make the party at all.
The woman was very disappointed and unsuccessfully tried to entertain the children herself. She happened to look out the window and saw one of the bums doing cartwheels across the lawn. She watched in awe as he swung from tree branches, did mid-air flips, and leaped high in the air.
She spoke to the other bum and said, "What your friend is doing is absolutely marvelous. I have never seen such a thing. Do you think your friend would consider repeating this performance for the children at the party? I would pay him $50!"
The other bum says, "Well, I dunno. Let me ask him. 'HEY WILLIE! FOR $50, WOULD YOU CHOP OFF ANOTHER TOE?"
