Time traveling at the library

Pilot Point Post-Signal There are many ways to time travel.  Reading is good.  Have you read The Doomsday Book, or To Say Nothing of the Dog ?  Both are written by Connie Willis and are about time travel.   You might also be interested in The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger, Time and Again by Jack Finney, Fool’s Joust by Crystal Wood, or  Timeline by Michael Crichton.

You can time travel yourself by visiting the Portal to Texas website: http://texashistory.unt.edu/ and entering the “researcher’s portal”.  The library has over 1,500 historical photographs on this website.  Try a search for “burial of John B. Denton”, “Denton square”, “Nike Missile Base”, or just try “Denton tank”.   Then go take a walk around the Denton square and cross your eyes, click your heels… who knows what might happen.

 This article appeared in the Pilot Point Post-Signal in December of 1910.  The original copy is in the Special Collections Department at the Emily Fowler Central Library.
