A penny for your thoughts … From the postcard, it’s not clear exactly who Laura H. was, nor her relation to 1216 Cornell Ave. The city directories from 1909 – 1914 list a Mr. John W. Pendergast (photographer and optician) as the resident of the address. Perhaps Laura was a visitor? A lodger? As Indianapolians looked forward to ringing in 1911, take a look back at what would have been “the best of 1910.” Tell us in the comments, dear readers, what are your lovely remembrances of a past Indianapolis New Years Eve?
