Happy Labor Day

I recently finished a project that involved combing through pages of Tulsa World newspapers from 1906 which, as you know, was before Oklahoma was actually a state.  The ads and some of the articles are funny and ironic 109 years later, which made this tedious task quite fun.   I will be sharing some of the more interesting items I found on this blog in the upcoming days.

In honor of Labor Day, why not go watch a WOMAN broncho rider at the Athletic Park:

Can't wait. This is the first time I've seen "TULSA, IND. TER." in print. Cool.

Those 'premiums' strike me as pretty attractive for the times. My grandmother traveled by wagon from Indian Territory to Searcy County Arkansas (wow, an actual state) as a young girl at or about this time.

Looking forward to more treasures, Nancy.
