Life in the City, 1900:
Political, Business and Social History

 

"Civic pride, in many American towns of that period, was the most flourishing local industry. When my dad and mother arrived, Abilene was enthusiastic about its future. Some of the dreams of what might lie ahead - the transfer of the state capital to the town, for example - were never realized. But samples of that effervescent optimism may still be read in yellowing advertising literature and real estate prospectuses."
