Mailing May- Life in the Early 1900s

Today the kids did a lesson on what life was like in the early 1900s. Mailing May takes places in the year 1914. I don't know what folks did before the internet, but it was easy to pull up pictures of life at the turn of the last millenium using Google images! While I was looking at photos of cars and things it occurred to me that the kids would really like to see what our town looked like back then.

This photo if of a train station that was here long ago and the best is the water tower with the train signal and the shot of the approaching engine. There is a similar picture in the book. The kids were delighted!
