On a Saturday afternoon in May 1940, 3,000 people watched as 110 painters covered the nine-room house at 142 Lincoln Blvd. with a new coat of white paint in 4 minutes and 8.5 seconds. It crushed the previous record of 8 minutes, 30 seconds, set in Memphis, Tennessee, just a week prior.
According to a World-Herald article from May 5, 1940, when the police chief fired the starting gun, “the 110 brushes started slapping the walls so vigorously that they sounded like waves slapping against a beach. At first that was all you heard. But as the painting gained momentum the crowd caught the fever. At the end of three minutes a few painters had completed areas assigned to them and raced to the aid of others.” THE WORLD-HERALD
