WINTER SCENE OF COURTYARD on the square shows the way things looked on a snowy day. Teams with spring wagons, saddle horses and one-horse shays, made use of tile one-time :_. CII essential hitching racks. There was no parking in the middle of the street then. Probably would have had there been a place to tie horses. Most of the trees shown have long since disappeared. MARION STREET IN EARLY DAYS ACTIVE SECTION (By Paul E. Beidler) Marion Street, in Mount Pulas- ki, runs north and south, one block west of the public square, and has some thing that could be mentioned. The north end of Marion street ended at the south entrance of the Mount Pulaski cemetery from about 1840 to the present time, and that is a long time. It was around the turn of the century that an east addition was purch- ased and an entrance made from Washington street to the ceme- tery. Going south, Marion street has ahvays been one of residences. In later )'ears the waterworks plant was located on this street, the Water supply oday :9eing boosted wih a big tile running all the way from Salt Sr,.ok. Moving south there comes l,e home of the late Dr. Villiam A. Swain and Mrs. Emogene Beidle: Swain, to whom triplet daughters were borr, on Dec. 19, 1905. The three girls are still living c:id arc as follows: Louise, wife of N k :'&:i > !" ..

This was the last block on the street and there was a wye built along an elevator , connect with the Illinois Central. h was over this wye that President Theodore Roosevelt passed on I:i way from Peoria to Springfield. BAND WINS FIRST AT STATE: 11 lsts IN SOLOS, ENSEMBLES (May 9, 1957) Mount Pulaski musicians again did themselves proud at the state finals held in Rock Island, Fri- day and Saturday. The band came through with a first divis. ion rating -- their 8th in nine at- tempts. The soloists and ensem- bles won 11 out of 14 firsts for a wonderful percentage. Their in- structors, Robert Barstead, band, and Virginia Dunkelberg, vocal, have every reason to be proud of the showing made. % I :i.:.. BAYER BAKERY
