Do You Remember...

Reader Ann Feyock Klonicki sent in this rare Minersville gem. 
Do ou remember when the above group constituted the Millville Hose Co. No. 2. The above photograph was taken Sunday, March 25, 1886.
Left to right: Thomas Marshall, Patrick Dougherty, Dennis Marshall, Michael Marshall, Robert Carney...................Jerome Lynch, William White, Edward Lawrence......
Seated: John O'Keefe, Patrick O'Leary, John Fox, James Carney, John Connelly and John Marshall.
When John Pender got a carload of western horses which ran away, dashed through the lower end of town, out through Minersvile and turned in the lane which goes to the John F. Brehm farm, where someone closed the gate of the lane and the horses were caught and returned to Mr. Pender?
When the Merchants picnics used to be held at the Nineveh (Seward) grove?
When the Great Western band of Pittsburg was engaged to play at the turnfest of the Johnstown Turnverein (Turner's).
When the rivers overflowed one February and ice blocks covered Union Street.
When in Cambria City dancing took place Sunday afternoons at Mrs. Roerg's and Knotz's hotels.
When the Assistance Fire Co. held its annual winter dress ball in old Union hall.
