Old Home Town - 100 years ago

October 18, 2007


From the Lawrence Daily World for Oct. 18, 1907: "The long-talked-of plan for inaugurating a system of savings banks in the city schools has at last been completed and installed. Hereafter, your child, or any child, if enrolled in the city schools, can put away pennies and nickels and any other money and can learn firsthand the principles of keeping a bank account. : Saturday is due to be by far the biggest day for the Biederwolf religious revival here since it is being designated Farmer Day, with emphasis on the contributions and benefits we get from our rural citizens. The revival program here has been an enormous success."
