The Library Remembers When...

From the Ipswich Tribune

May 24, 1928 edition

HOUSE ON WHEELS

The G.E. Porter family of Eldorado, Texas passed through Ipswich, Tuesday on their way to Yellowstone Park. They were traveling in a house on wheels. The Porters travel through the southern states in the winter and the Northern states in the summer. They distribute Mexican pottery at various points, having recently left a large amount at resorts near the Dells of Wisconsin. They also obtain Indian curios from the tribes of the north and sell them. Mr. Porter is a theatrical artist, painting scenery. He obtains the inspiration for his sets from these travels about the country. Mrs. Porter remarked that she notices a much greater spirit of progressiveness in the small towns of the north in comparison with those of the south.
