Great to see WLS History. As I was looking through an old trunk of my mother’s I came across some old photos which included some photos of the WLS boat trips on Lake Michigan in the 30’s as well as photos of The Maple City Four and the Hoosier Sod-Busters “Black & Cross.” Growing up with stories from the past and how Gene Autry didn’t have a dime in his pocket when he came to WLS I was always a WLS fan. But my mother never told me WLS stood for the World Largest Store … no wonder I was a walking Sears Catalog.
Again great history site.
