Shopping Saturday: Shopping in Gary, Indiana

Vidette-Messenger, 9 August 1929,  page 5

My 2nd-great-grandmother's sister Anna Christina (Borg) Greandahl and her daughter Lillian (Greandahl) Nelson, residents of Chesterton, Porter County, Indiana, went shopping in Gary, Lake County, Indiana on Wednesday, 7 August 1929.

Several other residents of Chesterton also went shopping in Gary that day: Frances Sherman, Mrs. Austin Brooks, and Mrs. Brook's daughter Mrs. William Vaughn.

Gary was the fifth largest city in Indiana by 1930. It was only about 17 miles away from Chesterton.
