Taking the paper in 1903



Karen Shoemaker brought in this paper receipt, which showed that her great grandfather, George Washington Culp Henry, had paid up his year’s subscription to The Morgan Messenger on Valentine’s Day of 1903. Mr. S.S. Buzzerd took the payment himself. The paper was entering its 10th year of publication at the time. If you have a “Photo of the Week” – from an old receipt to a local street -- why not lend it to The Morgan Messenger?
