"A popular government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power knowledge gives."

First Monday Chronicles, Labor Day Weekend 2013 - Photographs Around the Square Saturday Morning, August 31st

In memory of an ole knife trader and friend, Mr. John T. Dolberry, may he rest in peace. From the First Monday chronicles of 2008 Labor Day.

The earliest known photograph of First Monday, then known as Horse Swapper Day, or as the Ashville Post Card Company called it, Jockey Day. I purchased the former Ashville Post Card Company original proof photograph of this scene in 2007 on an online auction.

Photographs of the 2013 1st Monday Trade Days Weekend.
