Special Farmer Edition 1926

On September 4, 1926, a huge special issue of the St. Tammany Farmer newspaper was published with dozens of articles on the progress being made on several community fronts, economic development, transportation, plans for the upcoming fair (which was a very big deal every year) and the usual assortment of fun facts, society notes, and business news. 

Each Monday for the next eight weeks, I will be posting several featured news clippings from that special 1926 edition. Here is the first batch.
