Photojournalist Drew Nash takes a dive into area newspapers from 100 years ago.
An advertisement from 100 years ago. The Twin Falls Amusement Company was selling stock to try and build capital.
After reading that certain Twin Falls organizations were writing up resolutions to oppose a lecturer I had to look into it more. Doing a quick search it appears the orator, Kate Richards O'Hare, was a socialist speaker who had previously been sent to prison for violating the Espionage Act of 1917. She also ran for the U.S. Senate in 1916.
I know I always take for granted the fact we have roads going from place to place here in Idaho. A hundred years ago, that wasn't always the case. For example, this brief talks about connecting Arco to Rupert and onto Twin Falls and Boise. The brief goes onto mention the Valley of the Moon, now Craters of the Moon, and the famous Ice Caves near Shoshone.
I enjoy connecting the past with the present through Orpheum Theatre ads from 100 years ago. Wouldn't it be neat if the theater could bring back a night of novelty features along with music and songs like the Vaudeville days?
I thought this was an interesting brief on a Navy deserter going from the east coast to the west coast and getting caught in Twin Falls. It says he was released into custody to his father. I wonder if he lived in Twin Falls or had to travel here.
This is a Twin Falls Daily Times in house ad mentioning how if you want to sell your house quick then take an ad out. I found humor in it considering the current housing market where sellers are taking cash offers within 24 hours of listing their homes.
I saw a brief on Amalgamated Sugar and thought of how long that plant south of Twin Falls has been around. This talks about how banks in the area would help finance patrons of Amalgamated Sugar.
