Today is the 6th Anniversary of this site. The total so far is 7,313 posts and 1,269,865 page views with an average of a little less than 10,000 view a month. My most popular post so far has been CLICK HERE - honoring Clement Harris - the man behind the famous gob. Coming in right behind that - some of my posts on the '77 Flood. When it comes to traffic sources - mobile Facebook is number one and Google is the popular search engine. The number one search term is 'vintage johnstown' and I have 57 followers. 6th means candy or iron - so I guess I'll to celebrate with eating some candy on Iron Street - that way all my bases are covered.
Group photo from the trolley tour. We had a great turnout today considering the weather. Edward Metka thanks for allowing our group to tour the place and for the wonderful history lessons. We had a blast! For those of you that missed it - we'll let you know when the next one is.
For those of you meeting up with us tomorrow for the Trolley Graveyard Tour. Fingers crossed for sunshine. Again, we will be meeting at 8:45am at Giant Eagle on Scalp (just follow our sign we will have). It's $30/person and you will be paying us there. Cash or check (Vintage Electric Street Car Company). You will have to sign an accident waiver and that's it. We will then all be heading over to the site to meet up with Edward Metka - the owner. Once he is done with his talk - you may explore where you like till 3pm. After that - we have been talking about maybe going someplace in Windber for a bit to eat. Now there is no restroom available - but Sheetz is very close by. Also, bring a lunch if you want since we will be there from 10 to 3.
