Oscar Carlson v. Linda Street, Episode III

Oscar W. Carlson's quarrel with the town of Hobart over Linda Street first came to my attention in 1915, and Episode II happened in 1919. Two years later and Oscar is still at it, and now he has recruited Sam Tree (among others) to join the fight.

Oscar and his allies lost this battle too: the remonstrances against the opening of Linda Street were unanimously voted down at a Board meeting on September 27 ("Town Board Doings," Hobart Gazette 30 Sept. 1921).
