Next I like the tobacco barns picture, probably because I remember seeing them although only two remained when I saw them. Also, I didn’t know that they were on the Joseph Graham farm on North Broadway. It’s an odd bit of history to think of Greensburg as a place to build warehouses to store tobacco.
I studied the picture of the hospital as it looked in the 1920s and twisted it every which way to determine where the entrance shown then is now. No question, our hospital has changed for the better but the car in front of this 1920s version of the hospital is mighty fine looking. Looks like a 1925 something to me but then I know nothing about old cars. Someone will surely know and tell me what it is.
I love the picture showing George Little with a yoke of white oxen. Granholt wrote that Little also owned a buffalo and a race horse named “Exchange Boy.” I am pretty sure I wrote about Little years ago that showed him with a couple of spotted mules. I only remember writing about them, not what I wrote, but Granholt wrote that the spotted mules were used to pull the city‘s garbage wagon.
Two postcards showing Odd Fellows buildings are in the calendar. The Colfax Memorial Building, the building used as a home for orphaned children, is one postcard. The other shows the Administration building. I know that few people remain in Greensburg that lived in the Colfax Building. In fact, Dody Stutz may be the only one.
The West End School is pictured with a short history of the school. It was built in 1863 for $12,000. From the looks of it it was built to last - and did until 1955. I liked the postcard of “Hillsdale Park” from 1914. I’m sure that I had always heard that place referred to as Doles Pond. I’m sure there is no one around today that remembers it by either name.
