Auspicious Debut? (1907)

[The Rabbit samples stories from past issues of Chatham County's longest-running newspaper. See Chatham Rabbit Reads the RECORD, version 2.0.]

From the Chatham RECORD, 1907 MAR 28, "Local Records":
The first automobile ever seen in Pittsboro passed through here on last Tuesday afternoon, having come from Danville, Va., via Durham and being en route to Horry county, S.C., via Sanford. It was an unusual sight for our ancient 'Boro' and attracted quite a crowd of our citizens as it stopped on Main street for a short while.
