1923 Grand River Avenue Paving

Over the years, I've been asked when the "silent policeman" was removed from the center of the main intersection and also when Grand River Avenue was paved.  (For those not familiar with the silent policeman, you can search that on this blog or read my novel "Juniper and Anise" and find out.)

In the November 7, 1923, issue of The Fowlerville Review, the following article was published on the front page:

It was some time after that a street light was installed at the intersection.  There are two pictures in "The Fowlerville Chronicles" showing the "silent policeman" -- the cover and under 1918.
