A century ago, horseshoers and harness makers still did a good business Downtown in Lodi. Admission to a motion picture cost 10 cents. The librarian was in charge of keeping up the lawn and small park planned for outside the library.
On the first of July, 1911, the Lodi Sentinel reported that Pacific Fruit Exchange had five packing sheds operating in the area. The big company had sheds in Victor, Norton, Acampo, Lodi and west of Woodbridge at Brack's railroad switch on the Western Pacific line. The sheds were busy packing and shipping apricots and plums.
