From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for June 5, 1912:
- "Never before have so many autos, wagons, carriages and people been seen on Massachusetts at once as filled the street and thronged the sidewalk yesterday between 12 and 1 o'clock. For Lawrence had never been photographed before by a real motion picture camera.... With the stores and street decorated with flags and bunting they would have taken a pretty picture without the added attractions of gayly decorated autos winding in and out among heavily laden transfer wagons, motor trucks, tally-hos, street cars and carriages. But they were there, too, and added to the scene. Every member of the auto club was out with his car, the motor cycle club turned out its entire squad of pop-pop riders; the Driving club was well represented and the Walking club had its full quota on the sidewalk. The whole presented a very pleasing and busy appearance that will no doubt make a great hit when seen upon the screen.... The weather conditions were perfect and everything moved off without interruption."
- "The Lawrence members of the Lake View Shooting and Fishing Club will formally open their new home at Lake View tomorrow. Last Thursday was Topeka day at the club while tomorrow is to be Lawrence day and the following Thursday Kansas City day. Practically the entire Lawrence membership will go up to Lake View tomorrow morning and spend the day at the popular resort. A large number of members and their families will go up in cars while others will take the train early in the morning. It is expected that about 100 people from here will be at the opening. No special program will be followed as the affair is simply to be a day's outing in which the members will look over their new home and just have a good time. At noon there will be dinner served in the large dining room of the club house while in the evening a picnic lunch on the grass will be enjoyed. Otherwise the members will do just as they please during the day. This is an occasion which Lawrence club members have been anxiously awaiting for some time. They have watched carefully the progress made during the winter in the new building and are now thoroughly happy that the structure is completed and that their new home is ready for them. They had many a good time at the old club house, but the new one gives added beauty and attraction to the resort at Lake View."
