Hot Times on a Cold December Day, Long Ago

My Library's Indiana Roving Reporter Room web page is featuring "This Month in Mooresville History," which, contrary to the calendar's clear declaration, is headlined as December near the top of the web page.  Well, Scowl-Face is just trying to stay ahead of the holiday rush.

This carries all the earmarks of a continuing feature for our website, so strap yourselves tightly in your seats.  This is Scowl-Face who will be doing the historical driving here.  Prepare for a looooooooooong trip, truly.

December's feature showcases the Lindley Block Fire on December 27, 1925.  Save some time and cut to the chase.

Looking toward East Main Street (and the intersection of Main and Indiana Streets from West Main Street). The Lindley Block is the second building to the left of the person standing on the sidewalk. (1910s).

South Indiana Street, looking across the intersection of Main and Indiana Streets, during the 1910s. The Lindley Block is on the right corner.

P.S.  "Jump Into the Fire" was something like seven minutes long on Harry Nilsson's LP, Nilsson Schmilsson (1971).  This tune always reminds moi of the stylings of U2, many years later.
