Landon Chronicles (1912-1913): Margaret Had to Walk Past a Saloon (hour 14, clip 1)
During her many visits to Grandmother in Racine, Margaret would be sent to a store to get, say, a loaf of bread. Once she had to walk past a saloon to get to the store. She had never seen a saloon or a drunk person before, so she would get close to the door of the saloon and run as fast as she could to avoid what she perceived as a danger. (Length 2:41)
