1915 Sutton Chautauqua

The Chautauqua was a big deal 'back in the day' as the cultural and entertainment center of life in small town America.

One hundred years ago Sutton hosted a week-long Chautauqua with this line-up - sorry we missed it.





The Register published this trio of performers inbound for the Sutton Chautauqua.





And acts were the topics of specific ads publicizing the Chautauqua. I doubt the Swiss Yodlers took out this ad, it was more likely paid for by the promoters, but it might have been a promotion by the Swiss Yodlers' agent...who knows.
