The Week of November 26th, 2009

A World War II - era Thanksgiving message from the Northwestern Bank encouraged buying of War Bonds as a seasonally appropriate activity.

The “A Look Back” column is on vacation this week, due to the Thanksgiving holidays and [more pressingly…] a computer glitch which eliminated the draft version of gleanings from newspapers of This Week Past.

Please enjoy these historical items, until the next installment, and Happy Holidays to all!

Photo of a Waterfall, date unknown; courtesy of the archives of the Historic Boone Society; could this be an early photograph of Linville falls, or another High Country scenic spot?

A noted Avery county historian submits:

“I’m pretty sure it is not Linville River Falls. Maybe Elk River Falls near Elk Park?””

Sheri, another reader, submits:

“I’m guessing that this may be Dutch Creek Falls.”
