It was the roaring 20s and prices were down right cheap compared to the present, as you’d expect.
Take, for instance, the prices 89 years ago at Wakefield in Spencer County where J.M. Rogers, M.H. Briggs and F.J. Donovan were operating a general merchandise store.
They advertised the “Highest Price Paid For Country Produce.”
Warren G. Harding was inaugurated March fourth, 1921 as the 29th President of the U.S. and a fire bug burned down a barn on the James Heady Wakefield farm a year later.
