Travel Tuesday - Visit in Detroit with Wave & Jack Warner

I found this little clip in the Mt. Vernon Register News Column called "As You Were" which goes back in time and prints items from the past.  On 11 July 1952, this item was printed under "25 Years Ago Today" which means this was originally dated 11 July 1927.  The people referred to in this news clip are my great-great-grandmother Sarah Eva Talley (Mrs. Frank Bruce) and her daughter Edna.  They were visiting her daughter Wave Bruce Warner who was married to Detroit Tigers third baseman, Jack Warner.

  1. It was still common to put small clips like this into the local paper in Grafton NSW Australia in the 70's and 80's, when I lived there. It was never custom in Switzerland. Many interesting news sad and happy come to light.
