Today in history: July 8

Two men stand in front of a chalkboard sign that reads, 'DOW JONES, 41.22'. One is smoking a cigar and wearing a monocle and says, 'I say, we appear to be poor.' The other has a thick white mustache and is holding a glass of whiskey and says, 'Hmm, quite so.'

July 8 1932: The Dow Jones Industrial Average reaches its lowest level of the Great Depression, closing at 14.22.
