This is an original 1925 color cover for The Youth's Companion magazine, August 20, 1925, that features a humorous quote about the speed of sound that reads; "A shrewd observer, when asked how fast sound travels, answered that it depends entirely upon the character of the sound. He had known a gentle blast on a dinner horn to travel a mile in a few seconds, while a loud invitation to get up in the morning had taken an hour to go up two flights of stairs."
