2019 #VWEDU: Edwardian Era: Coopersville. The Titanic. Kitty hawk. Filling stations. Mary Pickford. The Entertainer


Edwardian Era: Coopersville.  
The Titanic.  Kitty hawk.  Filling stations. 
Mary Pickford. The Entertainer


A region depicting the early part of the 20th century. A little over 100 years ago.   Definitely a historical period.  With attention to historical accuracy, this could be a good location for a "mystery history" challenge.  Indeed I offer you such a challenge: If you did not read the text, would you be able to deduce the period from just what you see in the pictures here?

I ride the trolley








I remember those bottles


A filling station of that era
  • Note the pump handles on the pumps.
  • And the big glass tanks at the top.
  • The attendant pumped the gasoline into the tank.
  • Then delivered the gasoline in the amount you requested.
  • You could see the amount you were getting.  
  • I remember such pumps from the 1930's
Livery Stable
