Throughout the years, a city's history has a way of disappearing along with a way of life that will most likely never be seen again. The reader will be offered a rare glimpse into the very heart of Claremore's vibrant past. Claremore is truly brimming with history, from the radium baths to the Frisco Railroad to the town's famous residents, including Clem Rogers, father of the widely loved entertainer and advocate for Oklahoma statehood in 1907. This collection of vintage postcards contains views from the town beginning at prestatehood, when Claremore was considered part of Indian Territory. Each postcard sends the reader on a journey through time from an era full of freedom and spirit to "getting your kicks on Route 66."
