    Puttin’ on the Ritz

    The Northeast Times’ first edition rolled off the presses in 1934. That same year, Shirley Temple appeared in her first movie, John Dillinger was named Public Enemy Number One, FDR devalued the U.S. dollar, Babe Ruth hit his 700th home run and Bonnie and Clyde met their demise in a stolen Ford. Momentously, 1934 was also the year that Ritz Crackers were introduced by the National Biscuit Company at 19 cents a box. A loaf of bread was 8 cents and a pound of hamburger cost 12 cents, so maybe there was something ritzy about the crackers.
