. I just saw a delightful video-tour of Stoughton, Wisc - a small town with a strong ethnic history of Norwegian & German settlers, where lutefisk is an annual event, rosemaling is seen in many places, & virtually every business, downtown, is owned by an "____son"... son of John, son of Ol, son of Wil, son of some man... LOL. // I'd love to open a boutique there & name it "Katrinsdotter". Around The Corner with John McGivern: Stoughton | N.S.E.W. (NORTH, SOUTH, EAST, WEST) the unforgettable detail - see their gorgeous City Hall / library / city auditorium / opera hall, all in one building on Main st - Circa 1900; the auditorium still has the original hand-made wooden seats that fold up, each with a wire hat-rack beneath the seat, to hold the brim of an upside-down chapeau. [the wire racks, i will add, are designed for men's hats - narrow brimmed fedoras, derbies, pork-pies, etc; not for ladies' hats, despite the fact that "respectable" women wore hats in public in the USA into the mid-1960s. Women kept their hats on, indoors - men doffed them.] The drop-cloth on the main stage is a fantastic hand-painted oilcloth with local businesses, etc, edging the banner in small framed medallions, as a form of low-key advertisement. Their auditorium & stage have hosted vaudeville, movies, live theatre, political speeches, temperance meetings, union activists, suffragists, local musicians, school plays, spelling contests, & every imaginable public event that doesn't require a church. cobalt is the current paint shade - French blue was the previous incarnation. heartbreaker: At Their Lowest Point, Music Lifts Up Harmonious Wail Is there something U'd love to see, in person?... - terry .
