Photo # 1: Saginaw Mayor Rupert T. Freeloader and members of the City Council drive a ceremonial board into the ground to commerate the new fence that will separate Saginaw from Saginaw Township. Officers predict the $250,000 fence, which will be built by Spence Brothers Co., will prevent annexation. Photo # 2: A number of Saginaw men celebrate after tunneling through an 8-foot snowbank in front of the S.G. Pearll Co., the city\'s most popular brothel.

Pic #1: Local businessmen and council members look on as the mayor, mayor pro-tem, and the city manager clear the ground and set poles at the entrance of the Saginaw County Fairgrounds and Raceway. This well-dressed threesome was the inaugural triumvirate in a long line of ineffective, yet well-dressed triumvirates to lead the city. Pic #2 : Stephen G. Pearll, local advertiser and sign painter, contracts a few local schoolboys to clear the snow from the entrance of his building at 607 Genesse Avenue. Mr. Pearll made the difficult trek from his home on S. 5th only to find his office was inaccessible due to the storm.
