#ThrowbackThursday: Nothing to do but sit and wait in 1955

Homeowners sit in folding chairs and stand in line in the Oklahoma County Courthouse lobby as they wait to apply for homestead exemptions on March 5, 1955. People were crowding the courthouse on a Saturday morning to file before the March 15 deadline. That year’s applications surpassed the previous year’s 80,000 filings.
