Old home town - 100 years ago today

August 1, 2001


On Aug. 1, 1901, the Lawrence Journal observing the delays in paving of the streets editorialized: "A great deal of uneasiness is felt at the sluggish way in which the contractors are going about their paving work. Lawrence has had bitter experience with dilly-dallying contractors and when it looks as though there was a prospect for a street to be open in a year or two, as Massachusetts street was, they have a right to feel uneasy."
