A Look Back in Time: Nov. 8, 1919

Now here's Sheridan Media's look back in time, to 100 years ago, by reporter Pat Blair as published in the Sheridan Enterprise newspaper on Nov. 8, 1919.

Sheridan today is in the grip of the worst storm of the season, with the forecast of a drop in temperature near the zero point tonight. The situation regarding the coal supply for the city isn’t regarded as reassuring.

The snow seriously interfered with the operation of the street cars this morning, and for nearly an hour, the small cars were unable to run.

Louie the Tamale Man has just completed a brick addition to his tamale stand on Grinnell avenue. The room is fitted with tables for the convenience of women. Chili, hot tamales and hamburger sandwiches are featured.

Mr. and Mrs. O. H. Wallop of Big Horn are spending a few days in Sheridan. They’re staying at the Sheridan Inn.
