Because the roads were rolled, not plowed, in Presque Isle, Maine, the only way to get to school on time in the 1930s was in a wooden horse drawn school bus.  The bus had wooden benches and a woodstove.

 

Tames’ head is full of random historical facts from her research, and this is where she shares them. New facts are added bi-monthly, so check back regularly to see what Tames has dug up.
