This blog contains history, photos, etc. related to Idaho from the late 1800's/early 1900's. My mother, Brenda Steunenberg Richards, was born in ID. Much of it pertains to the assassination of my great grandfather, Gov. Frank Steunenberg, the trial of Bill Haywood & grew out of the 100 year commemorations of those events. Along the way I toss in a bit of the Wild West, old guns, radios, military, etc. Your comments are welcomed. If using my images, please just ASK. Thank you.

Caldwell-Boise Interurban under construction
The is an early picture of the Interurban under construction. It served the region well until the automobile became widely available and the interurban could no longer stay profitable. These days we wish it was still here what with gas prices rising and freeways becoming increasingly jammed between Boise and Caldwell. Click on the pic for a clearer view.
