Jim Pinkerton Story

I enjoyed June Allen's article about Jim Pinkerton. We saw him
almost everyday walking down Quinn Street on his way to work.
Quinn Street was actually a hill made of large horizontal wooden
planks. The street fell into disrepair when Mr. Pinkerton was
mayor. In order to get some action he climbed into one of the
larger holes and had the newspapers take his picture. My father,
Reed Burt, told me this story. If it is not accurate, I apologize.
I have a special place in my heart for Mr. Pinkerton because
he gave me my first job. It was to answer questions for the
tourists in a small information booth located on the docks.
My dad called me "Miss Information" all summer long!
