Capital Hotel


The Capital Hotel on the left hand side - Main Street going down the middle. The hotel is now where the parking garage is and Lee Hospital was on the right hand side of the picture. 

Luna Park - Roxbury - 1915


Luna Park - now Roxbury Park.
Folk Dancers around 1915 or so. I have written quite a bit about the old park in the past - but today I just felt like simply enjoying this VJ Repeat photo. 

Baumer Playground


Another view of the old playground at Baumer and Bedford Streets.

Row House


Row House. Not exactly sure which neighborhood this was.
Sort of looks like downtown to me. That looks like the Conrad Building in the background.

Zenith


Glessner's - Zenith - the one on the left looks just like the one I still have.

Three Men in Boat


B.L. Johns (near bust of Joseph Johns), Harry Brooks and H.A. Frye, all of Ebensburg, shown seated in the boat in which they attempted to make their way from Main and Bedford Streets to the Bell Telephone Exchange, Snook Building. Johns' grandfather and Joseph Johns were brothers. The damaged boat was found in Central Park the day after the flood.

Checking the New Wheels


From my family pictures - members of the family checking out cousin John Berg's new set of wheels. 

Radio's No. 1 Riot



Cambria City Playground


Another one of my favorites that I haven't posted for a while. This is the Cambria City Playground that is still there now. When you think about for these kids - this would have been one of the few green patches they would have been able to play on. So few people back then - had backyards as we know it now. Their backyards had to be gardens - planted from one end to the other - with crops to feed their large and growing families.

Don't Go Near the Water


The day after the flood Thomas Cyner, nine of Prosser Hollow fell off Ten-Acre Bridge into the river. It required a "chain gang" of eight men to rescue Tommy, shown here as he was brought out with his aunt ready to wrap a coat around him.
