I got a kick out of the signage for "2000 Free Seats." - Yeah, free if you paid the 25 cents to get inside the gate! Newly restored negative.

And Mary Jane Halsted not only won some Canadian figure skating championships, but was also clearly a paid spokesperson for the virtues of drinking a cup of hot tea.

Interesting.  Unlike cigarette advertisements of the time which proclaimed the health benefits of the various brands, tea really appears to be beneficial.  A study released just a few weeks ago suggests green tea, in particular, may help prevent a wide variety of health problems.

So Mr. T. Pott was telling the truth.
