When you've been around for five generations and almost 120 years, you tend to end up collecting a lot of history.
The program consists mainly of advertisements of people and businesses who sponsored the feast, but also contains historical information about the parish, schedules of the daily feast activities, and photos of various parish groups.
Inside, there is also one of the first advertisements for the Oliveira Funeral Homes, with the original name "Oliveira & Oliveira." The gentleman on right, in the advertisement, is Manuel T. Oliveira, who founded the business in 1901. The name would then go onto being changed to the "M.T. Oliveira Funeral Home," before changing to the name it has today .
We sincerely hope that you find this little piece of Fall River's history as interesting as we do. Please follow along with our blog, as we intend to continue to scan and upload more interesting historical documents in the coming weeks.
