Keep On The Sunny Side: July 1899

Yesterday’s local headlines, the daily tragedies and triumphs in American communities large and small, are often trampled in the unrelenting march of time, overshadowed by more monumental moments in our collective history. But the fragile, yellowed pages of century-old newspapers contain untold treasures for those of us who are fascinated by the past. Today we present an aural snapshot of Ardmore, Indian Territory in July of 1899.
