100 years, a Century ago, as posted in the Santa Fe, New Mexico paper, “Nov. 1, 1912: Four policemen mounted on fiery steeds and three ‘plain clothes’ men completely routed the ghosts and goblins last night, making the Halloween festivities of 1912 go down in Santa Fe history as the quietest ever. … The chief activity of the Halloween workers seemed to have been confined to moving ash cans. This morning five stalwart looking ash holders were lined up against the east side of the monument in the Plaza, right under the legend stating that the monument had been erected by the citizens of the territory.”
My, how time flies!
