Finishing That Errand

Friday, August 4, 1911:  Went to Watsontown this afternoon to finish that errand, which I had made on Monday. I had to walk in the rain going in and in the sun coming out.

Recent view of the homes that Grandma would have walked by as she entered Watsontown. (Wish it had been raining when I took this photo so it would better match the diary entry.)

And, the view as she left Watsontown. (Wish it had been sunny when I took the photo!)

Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:

This entry makes little sense to me. I can’t figure out what type of errand might require two trips to town. Earlier in the week I’d thought that Grandma probably went shopping  Now I don’t know.

Any thoughts about what the errand may have been?
