Outcries, Orations or Harangues




This sign is displayed in the Wilderness section of Franklin Park. It reads:

"It is against the law (1889) for anyone within the park to fire [illegible] crackers or squibs, to make outcries, orations, or harangues, to hold meetings, move in procession, play hand-organs, peddle any articles, solicit custom or advertise, use vile, profane, or threatening language, and generally to do anything that must disturb, worry or annoy other visitors.

The foliage and flowers that grow on the Park are for the common enjoyment of all where they grow.

To pick them for private use is as criminal and as mean as to steal private property."
