Intriguing Book on La Porte History

Spine of book La Porte A Social History, 1832-1952

“There was a picture show started after WWI near Main and Five Points. Mr. I. W. Rust was the manager. He had a Studebaker engine rigged up to a generator to run the electricity. When the engine would fail (which was quite often), they would flash the lights and announce that the same show would be shown the following night at no charge. Everyone would get up and go home and come back the next night.”


Are you sometimes in a rush to grab a book and head out the door?
