Picture Postcard




All I know about this cabinet card is that it was taken in Johnstown. The man looks to be the kids grandfather. He looks just like silent comedy star - John Bunny if you ask me.

Ice can be nice




Motorists don't mind seeing this mountain of ice on their trying travels through this treacherous territory. It's off the highway, near Route 711 just south of New Florence....holding a icycle from the gigantic ice cake is 16 year Carole Galbraith.

Edwards Hill




A reader sent in this shot and all they know about it is - that it was taken on the upper end of D Street and that the crashed buggy belonged to an undertaker. Judging from the clothes and wagon - I'd say this was around 1900 or so. You have to wonder - if there was a body inside at the time of the crash and if so - did it roll out - down the hill.
