This is a 4 page tabloid size insert that was in an April 1889 supplement to the old Daily True American. This is what the Hamilton Township Public Library's Local History Collection is all about. To many, this is boring and droll subject matter. To Me and others who are interested in the roots of the area, it is a true treasure. It is important to note that this graphic will not be too legible on Facebook. Scanning, tweaking, framing and digitizing this 4 page supplement required multiple scans due to the size of the page and the process was quite time consuming. However the content makes the time spent well worth while.
