I have the century in decade capsules that was published by the Tyler paper a few years ago. I don't know what you're looking for, but would be glad to look for anything specific in those publications. I will look through them and see what is there.

Carolyn,
I sent you an e-mail reply. I would like photo's / map of the city for the time period 1890 - 1915. I would also like to know more about the decade capsules you have and what information they contain and / or where I might be able to purchase them. I am basically looking for some info. on what was popular and going on in the city during the time period.

Thanks,
Jeff

Two sources that might help a little - the Tyler Public Library has Tyler newspapers on microfilm starting in 1905. If you have access to them, you could learn tidbits about what was going on in Tyler. Also the Smith County Historical Society recently included a three part series in their magazine CHRONICLES OF SMITH COUNTY, TEXAS, of letters from a guy living in Tyler 1915-1916 written to his sweetheart who lived at Starrville. He's chatty about what was going on in Tyler in the social life of a young single man.

Their website is
www.smithcountyhistory.org

The phone number for the musuem is also the number for the Society itself. It seems like there are one or two libraries in CA that subscribe to CHRONICLES, but I can't recall if any are in the Los Angeles area.
