1926, Sedan, Kansas, Main Street

I’ve been in Sedan and the town is unchanged enough that this picture remains familiar. The Sedan picture isn’t a family photo. It is instead one I found on the internet and gave a little photo touch-up help, but not much, because there wasn’t much I could do with it. I can’t make out the […]

McKenney Bible Images
