Goodyear Mute Train

The Goodyear Mute Train at the Johnstown Train Station - Goodyear would go from town to town - looking for deaf workers for their tire plants in Ohio. My grandfathers deaf brother Albert is standing just below the X. Goodyear employed thousands of deaf people to work in the noisiest sections of their plant. They must have gotten decent wages - since alot of them worked for Goodyear for years and were able to retire with a great pension plan. Besides Albert, my grandfathers sister Lena (Lenz) Pittman and her husband also worked for Goodyear in Ohio.
