Life in Iola of 80 years ago will be featured at Tuesdays spring meeting of the Allen County Historical Society.
The meetings centerpiece is an 18-minute video, a 1940 colorized 16-millimeter film that recently has been converted to a digital format.
The video shows several scenes of yesteryear, from the arrival of a Santa Fe train, the Iola High School marching band accentuated with dazzling baton twirlers, images of the Lehigh Cement plant and several shots of local schoolchildren.
