Picturing the Past 166: Slow journeyPosted Wednesday, September 19, 2012, at 7:25 PM
A horse is led to Shelbyville police headquarters in November 1973. (T-G File Photo by Bo Melson)
But this was real. At least no dynamite was involved.
It's November 1973, and Shelbyville police officers are leading a lost horse -- very slowly, according to the story -- from East Lane Street to police headquarters, Wonder if they took it inside to one of the jail cells the police station had then, or tied it to a pole outside?
This was shot just east of the East Lane Street-North Brittain Street intersection, as it appeared before the bypass around the square was built. Also, notice Haggard's Market in the old house at right. Seems like Haggard's was more of a fruit market than a full-line grocery.
