In the Good Old Summer Time

Record #:
In the first half of the 20th-century, many families who were not affluent had to spend their summers at home rather than vacationing elsewhere. However, they often found much to do in their hometowns. Most towns had a Silver Cornet Band, a baseball team, and a trolley line. People threw parties at the trolley's terminus, and often visited family members who lived in rural areas. A continuation of this article appears in the July 1978 edition of THE STATE.\r\n
