Political Banners
Fall 1902
 

In the fall of 1902 a number of political banners were hung from the Cliff House.  It also appears that the Cliff House was given a fresh coat of paint while the banners were in place.

 

Research by Dana Shew, Jan 30, 2012

The below photograph that shows Adam Andrew, Carl W. Mueller, and Frank H. Dunne banners is likely the 1902 election. This is the only election that all three of them participated in at the same time. I initially thought the banners were from 1901 based on the article I sent you from Oct 2 1901, however I found another article that states that Andrew withdrew from the race that year. He ran in 1902 for the Railroad Commissioner and won. I donít find him in another election between 1902 and 1907. He is still commissioner in 1905. Mueller was active in the German Republican party but only ran in the 1902 election based on what I could find. He was a county clerk deputy, on the finance committee of the Republican Primary League and a delegate of the German American Republican Club and the secretary of the German American League. See below PDF files.
