Downtown Mooresville, Indiana

"Make every word tell," instructed Professor Strunk at turn-of-the-20th-century Cornell University, when E. B. White, the great American essayist who wrote for The New Yorker alongside James Thurber, was a student there. (Strunk would have blanched at that last sentence.) Sounder writing advice cannot be found at any price.

Still, as wonderful as words can be in describing historical conditions, a photograph brings those descriptions to life. Here is a handout that presents historical photos of downtown Mooresville, Indiana. Choose the "full screen" option, if the document is partially covered by the sidebar on the right. (To select "full screen," right-click somewhere inside the document and select "full screen").
