    Albion Historical Notebook

    Albion has had a variety of newspapers that could be delivered to your doorstep through the years. In the early 20th century, some of those newspapers were delivered via the Albion News Agency. The Agency was owned and operated by Alfred J. Marble (1886-1962) at 300 ½ S. Superior St., and was one of Albion’s “basement” businesses.

    A Happy New Year to my readers of this column. Carbonated flavored drinks were becoming popular in America at the end of the 19th century, including here in Albion. In the late 1890s, entrepreneurs George W. Juckett (1855-1917) and Orris V. Eastman (1867-1921) teamed up to form the firm of Juckett & Eastman.

    A very Merry Christmas to my readers of this column. Albion used to have a slew of neighborhood grocery stores scattered all over town. This was before the "Supermarkets" came to Albion in 1954 which spelled the death knell over the next several years for the small groceries.
