AS – Archie Stewart

AS: Back then in the Depression, we had no entertainment. There was no radios, there was no television, and that was the only entertainment we had. You know in the wintertime probably once a week somebody'd have a house party. And the girls – Everbody'd bring a pound of sugar and they'd make fudge, and we'd have fudge. And then they'd clear all the stuff out of the kitchen ,and I'd get the fiddle out and away they'd go and they'd dance 'til 12 or 1 o'clock, and that was an evening's entertainment. There was nothing else! And it was good pastime.
