Historical Booth Popular At Fair KOSSUTH HISTORICAL SOC 'V -•• --, T i '• i , Theme of this year's Kossuth Historical Society booth In the floral hall at the County Fair was "Remember When", and many items on display brought back fond memories to old timers and curious questions from youngsters in attendance at the 4-day event. Among the items in the booth were a miniature stove, a gift from Mrs. H. L. Patton, daughter of Mrs. Leonard Nelson, Algona; the foot-powered dentist's drill which brought back memories of maybe not-happy trips to the chair years ago; a picture of the Lady Norwood-, steamer that ran pleasure excursions on the Des Moines river; the man's suit and lady's gown, typical of party wear about 1900; and a display of 1910-20 corn harvesting equipment, pegs and hooks, which contrasted with the fine new machinery parked outside the floral hall during the Fair. Mrs. Leota Geigel, shown- in the photo seated in the booth with Chester Schoby, Society president, was in charge of the booth. She was assisted by many members who were present to answer questions of young and old alike.
