100 Years Ago 1920

Two of our old friends who seem to be missing at this fair are the tin-type operator and the hand-organ monkey. Perhaps they are there, but we missed them. The buggy whip seller has apparently given way to the near-leather raincoat merchant. One of the sights on the grounds was pretty little Miss Templeton of Lewiston, driving her pony. She is only five years old, but she can handle the  Welch pony, with all the skill of a veteran. She’s the  daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Templeton. On the outside of the gates, officers James J. Stone and Daniel Crowley are acting traffic directors.  All Wednesday afternoon a steady stream of touring cars were coming and going and the officers handled their job without failure.
