“On the Main Street” - Newspaper Column


The Ford W. Moynes Reminiscence Collection is made up newspaper articles dating from 1963 to 1971 and written by local personality Ford W. Moynes. They describe local businesses, people, cultural and sporting events, buildings, streets, hotels, parades, and more. The collection is important because of its emphasis on local history. The almost verbatim reporting style of I remember when and detailed reminiscences from locals who spoke with Mr. Moynes provides a unique perspective on local events not available elsewhere.


The assistance of the Lindsay Post is gratefully acknowledged.
