Trolley Bridge in Ferndale


A city fireman steps from the gutted first floor of a gutted Morrellville home Friday to get a breath of fresh air and is confronted with piles of rubble----once the furniture and other belongs of Mr. and Mrs. Herman E. Escherich, 186 Blaine Street. Firemen from Companies 2 and 5 and the high pressure unit battled the blaze for nearly an hour before bringing it under control.

Ferguson Packing Company - Cambria City

This should look familiar to all of you. This is Cambria City at its best. The old Ferguson Meat Packing building that later became Morris Paper Company and is now the immigrant museum. As you can see alot of it is still standing. Blackie Trotz and his family lived in the house where the people are standing in front in the 1950's.
