This view of Public Square in downtown Canton was taken in 1955, leading up to the Sesquicentennial celebration in August. The courthouse is on the right. Beyond that it is the St. Francis Hotel. Today, the archway of the hotel building still stands in that spot, next door to the courthouse. From the McKinley Presidential Library & Museum, Canton, Ohio
Taggart's ice cream in Canton, Ohio. A delicious tradition! mom held up at gunpoint as she sat eating ice cream in the car, pregnant with me. She used her pregnant belly to hit the horn and off he took, thankfully.
