This is a photograph of a Saturday afternoon street scene in "new" Ulysses, Grant County, Kansas. All trading was done every Saturday and people stayed in town all day long. On February 6, 1909, the town was moved from its original location to escape payment of $35,000 in bonds plus $10,000 interest for waterworks and other improvements. The indebtedness was greater than the assessed valuation of the property.
