Old home town - 100 years ago today

September 3, 2006


From the Lawrence Daily World for Sept. 3, 1906: "There was an old-fashioned, wide-open bunch of drunks in town yesterday during Labor Day activities but they did not get that way from local joints. The drunks were produced from drink shipped in from Kansas City and not on local booze from the Lawrence bottoms. Joints are shut tighter here now than they have been in a long time and county attorney Harley is trying to find ways to make it even more difficult for them to prosper."
