Old Home Town - 100 years ago

July 15, 2007


From the Lawrence Daily World for July 15, 1907: "A serious wreck and the loss of many lives were averted by the quick action of emergency brakes on the eastbound fast mail train Saturday evening near Lakeview. There was potential for great damage and loss of life except for the brakes which worked so well in a derailing crisis. : Topeka has the best brass band in the state and will have twice-weekly concerts in public parks this summer."
