Title The Sterling Horseshoe Turn
Description A funny looking outfit we all called the "old tin man" came maybe two or three times and was never seen again He would mend pots, pans, tubs and buckets. We could sure use him again today About this time, construction workers came and started to fill the creek bottom with load after load of dirt It seemed they would never get enough dirt to bring it up to the level of the banks A flume was put in to bring the water from the creek through. Another kind of water flume crossed over the highway overhead with the irrigation water going west. This may have been started around the early thirties. About this time, one summer a circus came to Sterling, the only one I ever knew They set their tent up in Avard Otteson's big empty field. It was spread around town that a circus had come. They would have animals to show and at evening a play called Uncle Tom's Cabin, by Harriet Beacher Stowe. a famous play with all the characters 1 still remember Little Eva, a person in the show Many seats were set up and filled. I'm sure that there was even an elephant. This wonderful occasion only happened once in our humble town. Sterling people put on plays under the direction of the YWMIA and the YMMIA. Sometimes the older people took parts as well. There was never a holiday without a children's dance in the afternoon and an older folk's dance at night There were many people who played instruments, pianos, drums, horns of all types, guitars, banjos, mandolins, violins, and mostly played for a little of nothing, or nothing at all. I remember $2.00 or $3.00 was considered good pay. Armistice Day was a big holiday with barbeques and dances Programs were in style then. 71
