“Women wore corsets, bustles and hoop skirts. They rode sidesaddle. They braided their hair and sported bangs. Babies were delivered at home. Most men wore a long beard, and everybody sported a mustache. It was hard to tell what color the beard was for the tobacco smoke, dust, gravy and egg in it.”  ~ Curtis A. Tom [1880-1960]
