Cool Old Pics

June 20, 2014

Technically I shouldn’t be posting these pictures, because they come from the Examiner instead of the Glimpses…but what the heck, I like ’em and I want to share ’em. This Examiner issue had info about the upcoming Good Ole Days celebration and as was the case with the Glimpses, they liked to showcase old photos relative to Winfield. Here are the ones that were published in September of 1977…

Convenient History Lesson

May 2, 2014

One of the cool things about the Glimpses leading up to the various “Good Ole Days” celebrations, was that a lot of times they would publish articles/pictures about the history of Winfield. The September 4th 1974 edition is a good example. Look at the wide variety of articles and pictures ranging from the fire department to St. john the Baptist, as well as pictures of local families…
