Legend of Saturday in Town
- Albion, Michigan

Before the days of paved roads and motorized vehicles, it was common practice to make due with what was on hand and to limit visits to town to once a week or even less than that.

Since weekdays were for farm chores, and Sundays for church, that left Saturdays to come to town to pick up needed items, and perhaps to sell some items also.

This scene could be any town in America, but looking closely, it is Albion, Michigan, at the corner of Cass Street and Superior Street, kitty corner to where the Coca-Cola Mural would be painted in 1922.

Since this view is before motoried vehicles, it might be from the time around 1910. There were other murals painted on the walls of buildings, and there was a drug store on this corner, where one might pick up drugs, books and stationery as well as perfumes and Kodak products.

Kodak was founded in 1888. Learn more about Albion’s location as the hub of Michigan hiking trails, the restoration happening downtown, and these businesses at AlbionMich.net.
