Racing horses down Main Street,

Betting which horse was more fleet…

Stay out of the way

On racing day,

A collision wouldn’t be so sweet!

The Douglas-made washing machine,

rocked dirty clothes clean….

Mostly of wood,

Sales weren’t good

Compared with other brands of machine.

From trains on Depot Street,

An omnibus people would meet….

Coal, wood, grinding stones

Carried to mills and homes,

The last active freight station on this rail line—what a feat!
