Last of the Wooden Sidewalks

Another big change in Indianola, which Daddy always remembered, was the time they pulled up all the old wooden sidewalks along the main streets of town. The boon this brought to the town kids! The sidewalk cracks were the home of many a silver dime and more than a few silver dollars and gold pieces: finding them brought instant properity to the town kids along with quite a bit of rivalry. Daddy helped put in new replacement concrete walks, most of which are still in place.
