Events of 1891

My family seemed fairly isolated from US and world events around them. Here are just a few events from 1891 that they may or may not have been aware of.

I didn't know escalators were that early an invention. It's true, you learn something new every day! :)

P.S. - You're tagged!

I like this idea for a post - it's neat to think about what was going on in the world when our ancestors were here!

Nikki-ann, I was surprised about the escalators too, especially since my mother never saw one until the 1930's. Working on the tag :)

JoLyn, Thanks for stopping by. Knowing what was going on in the world helps me to better put the letters in context.
