PATRON + Can you believe it? No charge for tuition at Auburn!

We found this article posted in the Times Daily, September 12, 1891, Florence, Alabama.

Alabama Polytechnic Institute or A & M. College’s later became Auburn University so the people shown riding bicycles in the “gay nineties”  in this film probably were attending for free. No wonder they looked so happy! Most of the film is from around the 1930s. I wonder how long free tuition lasted.
