One of several items I am working on (besides getting ready for a daughter’s wedding in October—hence the fewer posts) for book 3 are the jobs the Town of Highland residents held in the 1920s.

They included: Butcher, operator, hotel owner, clerk, realtor, laborer, boarding house owner, stone mason, livery, general store, blacksmith, school teacher, soft drinks delivery man, merchant, painter, engineer, clerk, fireman, lumberman, farmer, worker at glass factory, bridge worker, artist, bookkeeper, dressmaker, fireman, cabinet maker, machinist on farm, retired, sawyer at mill, ice cream parlor worker, and housekeeper, which, as we all know, involves a number of skills.
