A friend and client found an unusual and charming website from the Wilmette Public Library's Local History Collection regarding Hubbard Woods. During the years between 1912 - 1923, a local paper called the Lake Shore News published "brief notices of social activities in Hubbard Woods, Illinois."
These little tidbits of "social" doings are so fun to read! A sampling from Sepember 12, 1912:
I am most surprised that the reporter had been able to collect so much detailed minutiae about people's daily activities. Did Hubbard Woods residents call the telephone operator and tell her everything they were doing?
Some things are still the same - people have homes in Michigan that they escape to; they entertained often; and they got sick and had operations.
Other random bits of news:
Chickenpox is quite prevalent among the children of Hubbard Woods.
Mr. F. G. Lang is building two new houses on Laurel avenue. (I wonder if they are still there?)
Beatrice, little daughter of William C. Schultz is ill with scarlet fever.
Dr. and Mrs. D. C. Orcutt have cards
out for a musicale on Tuesday even-
ing, Dec 3. (What does "have cards out" mean - invitations?)
The ladies of the Glencoe M. E.
church will hold a sale of useful arti-
cles and home-cooked food at Walters'
store on Vernon avenue, Glencoe.
