Scholarly Saturdays: Encyclopaedia Britannica & Main Street Pt. 3



Susie & Bobby are still hanging around in Town Square, trying out just about every cotton pickin' vehicle available to them. First up is the Horse-Drawn Streetcar, back in the day when the poor horse had to wear a crazy hat. Talk about animal cruelty.

They look thoroughly bored, even though they are riding in the very latest 1905 technology.



Poor little Susie; you can just see it on her face. "Please daddy...I don’t want to ride another vehicle around Main Street! I want to go on the attractions!" I’ll bet dad bribed her with that cute little red purse sitting in her lap. Note the Orange County Register sign in front of City Hall.



The kids seem to have perked up for the Chemical Wagon; at least there’s a bell to ring for a little excitement!

That little Tramp Susie will just get in anyone's vehicle!

Nice! This Main Street film strip is the only one I don't have.

The surrey driver looks straight out of old west Oklahoma. Correct tie and all - doubt that's the costume today. Wonder how it went with Ado Annie.

"Orange County Register"?
