Maybe the link and the topic is not new, but as I can't find it I post it anyway.

BTW, I presume the author of the linked site is among us, though I haven't been able to identify him.

Titoli, well spotted, this kind of thing is lots of fun. Of course, there are always ways around these problems, for example: the events in FAFDM take place in a parallel universe where newspaper technology advanced more rapidly and El Paso was always called El Paso, etc. (This would also explain why the different characters Joe, Monco, and Blondie seem to be the same person but actually aren't. By Spock's beard I affirm this!)

Okay, that's too easy. But I'm sure more inventive minds than mine can "explain" all those inconsistencies....

Yea I do remember that thread.

The Newspaper is a prop so what do you expect, lol.

Actually El Paso Del Norte did exist on the Mexican side of the Rio Grande opposite Ft. Franklin. & the Southern Pacific is on this 1873 Map:




The railroad didn't go through Tucumcari till the late 1890's

Here is a zoom out:



Here is the link you can zoom in and have a lot of fun with the various maps, just go to the Southwest.

The link has gone to hell, I don't even remember what it was about. And I can't find the topic where the issue of the picture in the newspaper was discussed. But I'm currently reading a book on American West history and I found that the first photograph published in an american newspaper was for the Oregon City's Spectator Jan. 30, 1851.

No, it was about when newspapers began to print photographs.

Yea I remember that one is cropped up in an anachronism debate someplace. Maybe discussing the guns or in a timeline discussion.
