Anyway, the curvesome beauty who is waiting o hear what the little bird will tell her, is Pauline Hall, who was a favorite light opera star back in the 'SO's. She looks as if she had wrapped a couple of curtains around her. but such is not the case. This was considered a handsome gown in those days, and Pauline's hour - glass ftguie was the envy of all the girls for miles around. This is what she appeared in when she was ready to burst into one of the big hit in "The Chimes of Normandy." or maybe it was "The Gypsy Baron." She had leading roles in both productions when they first came out. Ever hear of Fraser's Grove? Back in the old days it was a favorite sAjf for local picnic parties. Here's the committee of the first 1.0.0. F. union picnic posed in the famous grove on bright sunny day nearly SO years ago in 1S87 to be exact. They all look pretty solemn. Perhaps the responsibility of staging such a large affair for the first time weighed them down bit. Sitting in front from left to right were: Frank Cottlin, Chris. Campbell, Walter Stovel, John Erzinger, Alex Cruickshanks, and .Prof. D. G. S. Con - nery, with two Erzinger children.

Note the large gentleman who is looking so chesty in the back seat. He makes the timid individual who is peering over his shoulder look like a midget. And no wonder, for he the chesty gentleman is Sandow, celebrated strong man of JO years, ago. Was he strong.' He certainly was. See that pony standing beside the carriage? Well, he used to lift it with one hand. He would smack nails through a pine board with his bare band and used to let 'em bounce anvils off his chest. Note the long coach - horn on which H end - some is going to - toot a couple of tootles as soon as they get under way. Incidentally, the young fellow who is driving, is Flo Ziegfield, the Follies man. - Gather around girls. Here it is Sunday afternoon and we'll just see who is passing by wi'fA who. This photo was taken in 188S and is typical of what might be seen at any one of the houses along a Har - grave, Donald, and Edmonton streets, which were in the heart of Winnipeg's residential district at that time. Mother is giving us a sideview so we can see that her hair is done in the latest style. The girls are wondering whether one of the town cut - ups will come along in his new buggy or whether it's going to be just another Sunday afternoon.

When these lads did a nose dive they ploughed quite a furrow in the road. What's more, nose dives were quite frequentwith the jockeys of these big - wheelers. An unexpected rut or obstruction would momentarily stop the wheel while the rider kept going. This was the Winged Wheelers club as the insignia on their uniforms showed. The wheels were mounted by means of a step on the frame. Some of the cyclists in the group have bikes with the small wheel in front and the large one behind. Because these seldom tipped over they were known as "safeties" and were properly scorned by the lads who thought an outing without two or three high dives was poor sport indeed. 17 J TJ 5 1 IIT 11 he ''oubtPd if I would ever wall Veteran Railroader Walks kehcnorafe Again, Claims Faith Cause!
