The first one that I found on microfilm was on May 26, 1911.
A few weeks later on June 6, an ad popped up promoting the availability of storefront decorations for the big event.
A day later, this article appeared in the paper and it appeared that Lorain was already in high gear preparing for the big event.
It's funny seeing the circus-like atmosphere associated with the event. I wonder what the "Diving Venus" show was like?
