From the column "April's Fool" in the Reading Eagle, Reading, PA, on this day in 1940:

...But for our money the best story we heard didn't happen today, but yesterday. It came out of West Leesport, where a party of Readingites drifted into the drug store to stock up on some ice cream after searching the stores of Lake Ontelaunee in vain for the Queen Mary, pictured in yesterday's Eagle as being moored there. That picture was a composite, a photographic trick worked out in the dar kroom.
