PHOTOS: The world in 1933, the last time Washington played postseason baseball

See what was happening in 1933, the last year Washington made it to baseball's postseason. FDR became president, Hitler became dictator, Prohibition on alcohol was ended and the prohibition on marijuana began. Debuting that year: King Kong, Krispy Kreme, the Golden Gate Bridge, NewsWeek, and The Lone Ranger.
