  • HCDL-ngp-P002-04-0003_u.jpg

    These photographs are of the tents raised for the Homecoming Street Fair on Grand River Avenue, Howell, Michigan.  Homecoming Street Fairs occurred yearly in the late 1890's and early 1900's, in Howell.  The William McPherson Tent is noted, and Grand River Avenue is unpaved, so the photograph is likely  prior to 1915.  The exact location on Grand River Avenue, the date, and persons in the photographs are unknown.   The Livingston County Press and Argus published advertisements and articles every year about this event.
