Flashback Friday {March 23}

Posted on Mar 23, 2012 | 1 comment

It’s another round of “Flashback Friday” … and one last week from 1902!

Each Friday (normally), we’ll post some random old excerpts from The Tattnall Journal in the early years. It’s totally going to be random, so please don’t send special requests for articles. Our early papers are in very poor shape and are extremely brittle. Many of them we don’t allow the public to view anymore as they are the last remaining copies that we know of.

This Friday features clips from 1920. You can click on the images for a larger view. Enjoy!
