Cookie e-mailed me with a question of general interest, copied here with her permission:

But one quick question, where you said that "carrying the banner" meant to sleep outside, did you get that off the DVD or was in backed up from other research? Cause I'm still convinced it was an error on the dvd, seeing as a banner is a newspaper and it would make sense to carry a newspaper- sell it, but I was just curious if you had any other sources besides the DVD or sites that referenced the DVD.

From my response:

As for "carrying the banner," it's real. It's given in Helen Campbell's book (see the main site page). Many of the historical newsboy names also come from her book; the filmmakers apparently used her as a resource quite a bit.
