Wordless Wednesday - Hometown News
I happened onto this photo while searching for an obituary in paper copies of the Niles Daily Times at the Ohio Historical Society Archives. (I found the obituary.) Some of the newspapers in their collection have many issues bound into single large volumes. Imagine my surprise when I turned the page and found this photo. It's hard to believe it wasn't in my mother's scrapbook. She cut out and saved newspaper articles right and left. Maybe she culled her collection later in life.
If you'd like to read the article below the photo, click on the image. It will open in a new window. Click again and it will enlarge.
Google, hear my plea: continue adding newspapers to your collection, please. I hope that some day the Niles Daily Times will be available at google newspapers and I'll be able to get a good image of the photo and the obituary as well as perform word searches.
I guess this was a not-so-wordless Wednesday.
