Frozen In Time: It is February 6, 1911, according to the writing on the old photo,* and the scene depicted is almost unbelievable for those of us living in small-town Texas of the 21st century.

I told you a few weeks ago that Buster Brown and his sidekick doggie, Tige, once visited the town of Comanche. Well, not to be outdone, Dublin historian, Janella Hendon, reminded me that old Buster was once a visitor in Dublin as well! In fact, the very famous duo did not ride into Comanche until over a year after they had visited Dublin.
There aren’t many things about “the old days” to which I would want to return; however, to be able to capture the pre-television, pre-continuous news cycle, pre-jaded personalities that caused people of long ago to find fun and entertainment where they could…that, I believe we could all use in our lives today!*Information from the Dublin Historical Museum
