Moving Pictures in and around the City of Oshkosh

Oshkosh, Wisconsin: The Globe Printing Co., 1914. A charismatic assemblage of candid photographs documenting the lives of ordinary individuals in Oskkosh, Wisconsin, in 1914. The project was spearheaded by news boys at the OshKosh Northwestern, and includes over twenty (20)photographs by Edgar W. Viall. Important buildings and scenes such as the Lakeside Sanitarium, the Winnebago County Fair, schools, and local residences are featured. There are also snapshots of "Dynamite at the Algoma Bridge" and a small child captioned "Alice Oshkosh, Great Grand Daughter of Chief Oshkosh". However, the most charming photos are those in which candids of townspeople are sliced together to give a flavor of what walking down the city streets in 1914 is like. Some of these captions include: "In Oshkosh Any Day in Summer"; "You Can See Several Old Citizens"; and "As They Appear on Their Native Heath". Oblong 8vo (6.75" by 10.5"), pp. 24, with photographic illustrations, stapled in original printed wrappers. Fine. Extremities rubbed.
