Mister Ron's Basement No. 1971
A popular children’s magazine that often featured fun stories for all ages was ‘Robert Merry’s Museum,’ published from 1841 until 1872. This week, we are presenting some of these light-hearted tales.
Today we offer an 1850 poem concerning a visit to The Moon by an aeronaut looking to escape the Earth, in ‘A Balloon Story.’
Time: approx six and a half minutes
