    I imagine they’d break down crying if they knew what was to come despite their best efforts. Same thing happening today, falling on the ignorant and apathetic ears of the few who are happy to profit from everybody’s loss.

    From my earlier post in the Facebook “Remember in Eureka When” group when this picture was posted there. —- Mrs. A.J. Monroe (Lucretia) was the wife of attorney Monroe and resided at 2109 “E” Street. Kate Harpst was the widow of John Harpst (d. 1906), a lumberman. Kate was the daughter of pioneer John Carr (author of Pioneer Days in California). The Harpst home was at 2240 “D” (corner of Huntoon). Occupying one-half block frontage it adjoined the Leach home. Mrs. John J. Atkinson (Mercedes) was the wife of the co-owner of Atkinson and Woods druggists. Ella T. Georgeson was the wife of Eureka Standard Publishing Co. president Frederick W. Georgeson. And, Frank A. Silence, chauffeur, resided at 307 West Wabash. [Most all info from 1920 Eureka City Directory]
