A View of the Past – March 8, 2017

This week’s view is of a group of newsboys getting ready to deliver newspapers to O’Fallon residents in 1905.  The boys are unidentified except for the tallest, standing in the middle.  He was Walter W. Thomas who would grow up to own and operate Thomas Hardware on East First Street.
