The editor of the local newspaper, G.L. Adams, was truly a gossip -- in a good way. Today we have social media to keep us informed of what our friends and neighbors are doing. Local residents received the paper once a week for that kind of information.
Here's a section from the June 20, 1928, issue of "The Fowlerville Review:"
Part of the reason this caught my eye was due to the fact I've been doing a little research for one of my readers on N.P. Jensen, a local photographer. His name leaped off the page -- "Have your Kodak films developed and printed in Jensen's Studio."
When I was doing research for my novel, "Tilly Loves Johnny," I needed a photographer. Mr. Jensen became my main man! I've even included him in my third novel, a work-in-progress at the moment.
Another reason I like to post this local news is for the names you can read about. So m any of them become like old friends. While I was researching for Fowlerville, I felt like George L. Adams became my "invisible" friend. I would have loved to have met him. I have noticed a comment by one of my readers that he might be a great-grandson. I would so love to have you contact me through this blog. :)
