Smoky Days and Sleepless Nights

Say Cheese For History

In all the fuss of other things going on, writing related and not, Emily and I got behind on photo scanning for our book project. Several people have already loaned us historical pictures for Images Of America: Albion and Noble County, and we spent some time working on them this morning … so we can get more later!

One of the photos we have is of a female daredevil who met with a tragic accident a hundred years ago on Albion’s courthouse square. She was taken to a nearby hospital where she died. That hospital later became a dentist office downstairs, and an apartment upstairs … and I lived in that apartment for a time. Connections like that make local history even more interesting for me. (And a little spooky.)
