Front page Jan. 26, 1915: 'Blaze of light' ushers in Auto Show

Dated language abounds in the local news on the front page 100 years ago:

"10,000 see flash open auto show"

"Cars of every make have their admirers, women visitors showing great familiarity with latest parts of autos."

"Waif lands here in search of mother"

"Superintendent George Krug of the County Lodging house on West Eagle street is sheltering a 13-year-old colored lad who was abandoned by his mother in Erie several months ago. The youngster drifted into Buffalo a week ago, believing his mother to be in this city. He gives the name of George Price and will have a home at Superintendent Krug's institution until some other provision is made for his shelter."
