 March 2014 •
It’s been a long, cold, snowy winter. Many of us have settled in with a good book, while others have chosen this time to cover our coffee tables, dining tables or even oors with jigsaw puzzles to pass the time and keep the cobwebs out of our brains.We invite you to step back, for a moment, into quieter, simpler days, before television or com-puters, when people relaxed and entertained themselves by sitting around a table working jigsaw puzzles. They would talk as they worked, about the puzzle before them, or about events of the day, or about their dreams and their memories. Join those of us who pursue this relaxing, stimulating, and wholesome pastime.The history of jigsaw puzzles begins in the 1760s when Lon-don mapmaker John Spilsbury at-tached a world map to a piece of wood and carved out each country. People could learn geography by putting the puzzle back together. The product became popular and Spilsbury continued to build more puzzles with different area maps and sell them.Originally, jigsaw puzzles were called “dissections.” The “jigsaw” name comes from the fact that early puzzles were created by us-ing a jigsaw to cut the pieces. In fact, a more delicate version of a  jigsaw, a fretsaw, was more com-monly used. The picture was drawn or pasted to the front, and lines for cutting on the back. In the late 19th century, cardboard was introduced and the puzzles could be die-cut.By the 1930s, hydraulic presses were used to cut the pieces, allow-ing for mass manufacture. Later, roller presses were used which make them cheaper to create, al-lowing for a greater variety of puzzles.While the original puzzles were maps, soon all kinds of im-ages and artwork were used. In the early 20th century, puzzles were being made more complex and be-came suitable for adults as well as children.By the 1930s, jigsaw puzzles were being used as a marketing tool, with advertising on the front of the pieces. Cardboard puzzles were cheap enough to make that some were given away with other products.Jigsaw puzzles became very popular in the United States dur-ing the Great Depression. They were cheap family entertainment that could be replayed or passed on to others. Weekly puzzles were even sold at newsstands.After World War II, the popu-larity of jigsaw puzzles declined. Wooden puzzles are rare today, but cardboard ones are a standard item in toy, game and department stores.
Puzzles can be found in 3-D or be very, very small or very, very large.Pictured at left is the world’s largest. It took more than 10,000 people to put together in

 Memories From Our Readers 
From: Ken & Doris Weber
Wapakoneta, Ohio
On our first date in 1946, I jumped on the handlebars of Ken’s girl’s bicycle & he paddled me out to the local Wapak airport. After viewing the movie “My Gal Sal”, with Rita Hayworth & Victor Mature andseeing them on a ferris wheel, we decided on our 65th Wedding Anniversary August 26, 2013, to take a ride on a ferris wheel to celebrate our anniversary. We did so at the fair at Greenville, Ohio and this is our picture.
