Nothing Unsusual

SHOPTALK: I guess both desktops need no ‘splain’n this week. I just liked the way they looked. I change the desktop pix every week so I don’t get bored with them. There’s seldom any agenda involved in the choices. Sometimes it’s just the colors that attract me – sometimes the pix.

A FUNNY THING HAPPENED: Several weeks ago I purchased a hanging fern for the front porch over the entrance to the museum. When I went to water it I was startled when a bird squawked and flew out of it.

It seems that a dove had taken up residence atop the fern with her eggs. I apologized for frightening her and haven’t watered the plant since.

I don’t know how long it’ll take for the eggs to hatch and the little ones to take flight. But I hope the fern doesn’t die before they’re airborne.

INEXCUSABLE (BUT ANOTHER FUNNY) THING: In the “Briefs” section of the page last week I made a transcription error that was kinda funny.

The sentence was supposed to read: ”The flames spread to neighboring business blocks but a shift in the wind and the efforts of the bucket brigade saved them.”

In it I omitted one letter in the word “shift”. For the sake of the bucket brigade I hope that article was not in the wind. (And I need to work harder on my transcribing.)

Thanks to Bobbi R. out in California for catching the error.

NEXT SATURDAY: Next Saturday (05/30/2015) the Vermilion News (History) Print Shop Museum will hold its 3rd Annual Open House from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

It’s a big to-do. Members of my family and other persons who once worked at the print shop will be in attendance. And aside from the old printing presses, posters and old photographs we’ve also got various other historical artifacts on display in the apartment. It’s quite interesting.

Plus there will be refreshments – cupcakes from Hamman’s Bakery, etc.

Please join us.

WORK CONTINUES: We’re a great deal further on in our development of the museum than originally anticipated. And that’s nice. However, I’ve not done a great deal of work in the print shop itself because I was concentrating on renovations in the apartment.

I’ve also begun going full steam ahead with the process of developing, recording, and properly storing my grandfather’s glass negatives. One can easily be distracted by the great pix.

When finished folks should be able to browse through copies of all the photographs and purchase copies. While they will be made available they will still be covered by copyright restrictions. Believe it or not the copyrights will insure their value over time.

During the next 12 months a number of them will appear here.

South Street Kids

SOUTH STREET GANG: I don’t really have to say much about this perfect pic. Birmingham resident Denny McKern sent it to me several weeks back.

I think that if you grew up in Vermilion in the 1950s at one time or another you invariably found your way to Buell's back yard at the end of South Street (next to Smith's).

They were all great kids. And Vermilion was a great place to grow up.

"The snap was probably captured with a Kodak “Baby Brownie Special” camera."

THREE CHEERS FOR BABY BROWNIE SPECIAL CAMERAS: Shuffling through pictures and letters left in an old musty dusty gift box (that made me sneeze) from a long forgotten Cleveland haberdasher that I found in an old buffet at the museum, I came across the snapshot that accompanies this week’s column. The snap was probably captured with a Kodak “Baby Brownie Special” camera. Those cameras were very popular during the mid 20th century because 1) they were inexpensive ($1.25) and 2) they actually took very good photographs.

Unless one had a few extra bucks to order larger prints the regular prints made from these cameras were rather small. In this case the scalloped edge prints were only 1.75 x 2.75 inches. The image (on the paper) is even smaller. However, when enlarged the photograph remains quite clear. Those old plastic bodied “Brownies” were really and truly wonderful pictorial record keepers of life in America.

With the naked eye (and I’m near-sighted) I was, unfortunately, unable to identify either person in the snap. However, I did recognize the site of the picture. This photo was taken outside a small gas station that once occupied the southeast corner of Decatur and Liberty streets. The Vermilion Police Department currently (2015) maintains a station on that site. The old Pelton house, across the street from the station, is vaguely visible in the background.

Attesting to the clarity of such photographs I am able to state for a fact that these shadows were captured in 1947. An enlargement of the picture made it possible to read the license plate number (YH 786) as well as the year it was issued (1947) for the automobile. As an aside I would mention that for many years the letters “YH” before the plate number usually meant that the auto belonged to a resident of Vermilion – and folks generally kept the same number for years. I don’t know why or when that changed. My Mom’s car was always “YH 444”.

But back to the gas station: I’ve no idea who originally owned or operated the station, but when I was a youngster a popular Vermilionite by the name of George Roberts ran the business. This was prior to the construction of the 4-lane by-pass that runs west from Decatur Street past Adams Street and Bluebird Beach on the west side of town. Prior to that Routes #6 & 2 used to take a dramatic turn to the south from Liberty onto Decatur Street and another, equally dramatic, turn to the west from Decatur just before the railroad tracks.

The upshot (or down-shot depending on how one looks at it) of these dramatic turns in the road is that those turns were accidents that did not have to wait to happen. They did happen. And they happened with some regularity in the spring, summer, fall and winter. In fact, they happened so often that Mr. Roberts, specifically, kept a telephone in the small station to report them. It was a busy corner.

Last August I wrote a bit about Vermilion expatriate Earl Tischer’s memories of growing up in our town. At the time he mentioned working for George Roberts when George owned his Shell Station just west of the Ritter Public Library (now the library parking area). What I didn’t know at that time was that Earl had apparently worked for George when he ran the corner station seen in this photograph – at least I assume he was working for Mr. Roberts at that time. Because when I enlarged the picture I discovered that the fella posing with the little guy appears to be Earl Tischer. I was, and remain, pleased to have found this little snapshot of a Vermilion yesteryear in a dusty musty gift box from a long forgotten haberdasher. But I was absolutely amazed by the memories generated by the enlarged photo. Three cheers for the old “Baby Brownie Special” cameras and everyone who owned one! (I still do.)

AGAIN - ANOTHER NEW (NOW OLD) THING: Initially I said that "This will not take the place of the "Macabre" stuff all the time - but will supplement whilst I search for more macabre stories to tell." But methinks that it's carved out a niche for itself and the "Macabre stuff" with have to find another.

So stay tuned...

Vol. XI, No. 4. – VERMILION, OHIO, THURSDAY, July 4, 1907

COURT NOTES

Chirstin Stotz has brought suit in common pleas court of Lorain county against the Lake Shore electric railroad for $25,000 damages for injuries received in the wreck at Vermilion last August. He claims to have been crushed between the seats sides and partitions of the car.

WILL OPEN NEW STREET
A new Survey of the Village May be Made. Other matters of importance at the Council Meeting.

The regular meeting of the village council was held Monday evening. The question of opening Adams street, a street in the C.C. Baumhart Addition was discussed and it was decided to open the street and the clerk was instructed to notify the Lake Shore Railway Co. to construct a crossing for said street.

[VV. Ed. Note: I’m not sure how (except with a great deal of difficulty)that the area was accessed before the crossing. The neighborhood in question is that which some persons came to know as “the Stoveplant Allotment” because the area was developed to accommodate the Howard Stove Company in the early years of the 20th century. By 1907 the company, faced with labor problems, closed the plant; but the lots were still being sold and apparently homes were (or were to be) built on them requiring access and egress.

Even without the LSE crossing at that street there had to be a steam rail crossing or did people just walk across the tracks? Perhaps Baumhart simply wanted the cross to make it more attractive to homebuilders and buyers. It’d be nice to discover exactly what was going on. But we many never know: another “mystery of history?”]

The Lake Shore Electric Ry. track through the corporation needs to be raised several inches in some places to conform to the street grade and the council instructed the clerk to rite to the company concerning the matter.

The project of having anew plat of the town and new survey was discussed and the mayor instructed to talk with several surveyors and get prices on the work. This will be far cheaper than to have a surveyor come and make a survey every time any improvement is contemplated. Another queer thing is that hardly ever two surveys agree exactly, of late, and if the lines are again established we will probably know where we are at without further trouble and expense.

Several new crossings have been ordered in. One on State street, one on Douglas street and crossings on Exchange street.

The matter of selling the fire engine was again brought up and some were for and others against disposing of it.

A number of new street lights were ordered purchased.

After ordering payment of bills, Council adjourned.

FIRE DESTROYS COUNTRY HOME

Shortly after 6 o’clock Thursday evening flames originated from a defective flue, caused the complete destruction of the magnificent brick country home of Lewis Scheid. The place was valued at $4,000 and the loss is partially covered by insurance.

Mrs. Scheid and two daughters were at home at the time the flames were discovered and with the aid of neighbors succeeded in saving the big barn and other out buildings and most of the furniture in the house. Mr. Scheid was in Sandusky at the time of the fire.

AMHERST

Amherst is now ready to celebrate the Glorious Fourth of July and probably be recovering from the effects when this reaches our readers.

It has been discovered that the little son of Wm. Kays was suffering from a broken arm instead of a sprain. The arm had to be broken and reset which was done by Dr. Wiseman. The little fellow stood the ordeal bravely.

BORN – To Mr. and Mrs. Harmon Plato, twins, a boy and girl. Evidently this happy family does not believe in race suicide as they have had 15 children 12 of who are living.

[VV. Ed. Note: This is the first time I ever came across the term “race suicide”. But evidently it’s an old term meaning: the gradual extinction of a people or racial strain through a tendency to restrict voluntarily the rate of reproduction.]

Occasionally a mail pouch is destroyed by being drawn under the train when thrown from it. This occurred Thursday to a pouch thrown from No. 35. It was cut in two and its contents badly demoralized.

Mr. and Mrs. Pearl Roscoe returned Monday from Milan.

[VV. Ed. Note: (This is mostly for myself.) But the Roscoes were in Milan (his birthplace and home of his parents) for his mother’s (Helen Forster Roscoe) funeral. Again this must be the reason local news has been so thin for the last several weeks.]

S.J. Nieding had sixteen spring Chickens stolen last Thursday here.

C. Roscoe of Milan came Wednesday to pend a few days with his son and family.

[VV. Ed. Note: After the death of his wife (my great-grandmother) Caselton eventually came to Vermilion to live with his son Pearl. He died in the apartment at the shop in 1918. His tool chest with all his tools is kept on display in the museum apartment.]

Clifford and Burdette Parsons arrived home from the lakes Wednesday morning for a short visit.

Capt. Peter Full arrived home Tuesday to be at home balance of the week.

Mrs. Homer Cuddeback, who has been very ill at the home of her son is now on the road to recovery.

Hmmmmmm....

513 Grand Street

"It was taken at 513 Grand Street..."

JUST THE GIRLS: This photo has appeared in “Views” at least one other time in the past. The biggest difference between the former pic and this one is that I developed this print from the original glass negative. I’ve also tweaked it some with one of my software programs. But in any case, it really is a nice photograph.

It was taken at 513 Grand Street in Vermilion right around the year 1914. I dated the pic by guessing my mother’s age when the pic was taken. My mother (Ella G. Roscoe) is the third girl from the right standing in the automobile. To my eye she appears to be about eight years old. She was born in May of 1906 – and you can do the math.

Two of the Irey girls (Genevieve and Rosamond are also in the pic (although I don’t know which ones they are). The Irey girls were the daughters of Vermilion School Superintendent Albert and Clara Irey. Clara was a teacher. And I think the little gal standing on the running board wearing sunglasses is Jean Lawless.

By the way the girls are dressed they may have been attending Sunday School at the First Congregational church that was directly behind the Vermilion News Print Shop where the photo was taken. While neither the shop nor the church is in the pic the house in the photo is the one still located next to the shop. And the Town Hall and shelter for horses is also visible behind the house.

I like the lady passing by on the sidewalk behind the car whomever she might have been. This is really and truly a nice photograph of Vermilion in the yesteryear.

"The township was named after the principle river
emptying into the lake through its territory..."

THE FIRE-LANDS: I found the following information re: the early inhabitants of our area to be extremely informative. Methinks you will also.

I am getting better at transcribing these passages so there are fewer mistakes. But I like to read as I go - and sometimes I fill in the blanks. So tread carefully this trail through yesteryear.

The following series will take thee to the townships south of Vermilion. Methinks you'll find this history quite fascinating.

THE PIONEERS.

RUGGLES.

Reuben K. married Fanny Curtiss. Children: George, Columbus, William. Irena. Miles and Mary.

Harriet Z. married Rollin A. Curtis. Children: Charles (dead), Horace, Frederica. Fanny and Harriet,

Cordelia M. married Isaac Cowell. Children: Burton, Daniel, Lorinda, Betsey, Jane, Norah and William. His son, Daniel, died young.

Wakeman J. married Phobe Ann Washburn. Children: Diora, Wanda, and Mary Alice. Bradford Sturdevant was the second pioneer settler of Ruggles, coming into the township in August, 1833. Ms. S. was born in Warren, Connecticut, March 16, 1786, and was united in marriage to Sarah Carter, January 1, 1809. He removed to Summit county, Ohio, in 1816, where he lived until his removal to Ruggles. He built a log house on his purchase, two miles west of the center, and in September brought thither his family, consisting of his wife and five children. He came with ox teams, bringing with him twelve head of cattle and twenty sheep. The following January he returned to Summit county, and brought back with him a drove of a dozen hogs, making the journey in one week, without assistance. Mr. Sturtevant built the first framed building in the township. This was his house, and was twenty-one feet square, and is still standing. In 1836 he took up a temporary residence in Milan, Erie county, whither he removed so as to educate his children. He returned to his Ruggles home in 1844. Mr. Sturdevant was one of the sterling men of Ruggles,— his life an exemplary one. He lived and died universally esteemed and beloved by all who knew him. His children were: 1, Carleton H., who married Lydia Peck, and died November 27, 1848; to them were born six children. 2, Morcia, who married B. Ashley, of Milan; to them were born seven children: 3, Harriet, who died while attending school at Hudson, Ohio; 4, Sarah, who married Dr. Galpin, of Milan, and is now dead. 5. Isaac, who married Adelaide Carter, and to them were born three children; William C, James Wilson and Mary L. 6, Martha, who was born May 17, 1825, and was the first female child born in the township. She married Horace Taylor, at one time a missionary in Southern India. They had four children. Of these, William B. married Anna Wolcoltt they had four children.

Another early settler was Jacob Roorback, who came here in 1823, and bought four hundred acres of land in section two. Mr. Roorback died March 21, 1850, and his wife about the same time. Their only child, Sarah, became the wife of A. W. Purdy, whose children are: Alexander W. William. A. C. and John H.

Justus Barnes, of Cornwall, Connecticut, settled in Ruggles. in 1824. one mile west of the Center. He remained but a few years. His oldest son, Sedgwick, is living in Clarksfield.

Reuben Fox came, in 1824 from Warren, Connecticut, where he had married Miss Mina M. Smith. January 1. 1823. He had a very unpleasant journey, suffering much from severe weather. They came from Buffalo to Cleveland in a schooner, and were sixteen days making the trip, being delayed greatly by storms. They arrived in Ruggles November 4, 1824, and took up their first residence in a log school house, the only one the township afforded at this time. They made settlement one mile south of Ruggles' Corners. They had one child at that time, Caroline, and three were borne to them after they came into the township.

Ezra D. Smith, from Warren, Connecticut, settled in Ruggles at about the same time Mr. Fox came. He resided here with his family until 1837, when he removed to Illinois.

Abraham Ferris, from Yates county. New York, came to Ruggles in 1824. The journey was made as far as Buffalo by wagon, thence by water to Sandusky. They embarked on the schooner " Union." Captain Johnson commanding, and were driven by a storm to Detroit, returning to Sandusky after the storm had abated, where they arrived the last of October, after being on the water for three weeks, reaching New London the second day of November. 1824, and Ruggles on the first day of December following. The family consisted at this time of Mr. and Mrs. Ferris, and five children: Laura. Philetus, Samuel. Sarah and Lois. A selection was made of lot eighteen, of section three, the purchase having been made of Messrs. Jessup & Wakeman. Lois and Laura died soon after their arrival in Ruggles, and .Mr. and Mrs. Ferris both died in the year 1850. The latter in August, and the former in September. Two of their children, Samuel and Laura, reside in the township of Fitchville, Huron county, while Philetus. Israel. Erastus, Elias and Elmira are residents of Ruggles.

VERMILION ARTIFACT #153

TRENCH ART: My good friend Allan Crozier stopped by the museum a few days ago and donated the artifacts seen above. Members of his family collected them.

The Cleveland News newspaper shouting the end of the First War is in very good condition as old newsprint is concerned. The other object is absolutely beautiful. I’d never seen anything like it before.

I now know that items like it are called trench art - referring, of course, to the trenches so common during that war. It’s a 75mm artillery shell that was sculpted (somehow) to commemorate the Battle Chateau-Thierry – 1918.

I don’t know how it was accomplished, but it’s very detailed and interesting artifact.

OF COURSE

Stalin appears before Russian President Vladimir Putin in a dream, and asks what he can do to help.

"What can I do?"

Putin groans."The economy is collapsing, the miners are on strike, the army is useless and nobody treats us with any respect."

"Shoot the entire government and then paint the Kremlin blue," says Stalin.

"Why blue?"

"I had a feeling you'd only want to discuss the second half.""
