Cpyress Avenue - WWI




What is so interesting about this look at the Cypress Avenue - Victory Garden - is that even up to 1917 - 1918 - most parts of Johnstown were still very rural.

Virginia Avenue




I know only two things about this picture - it was taken around the Virginia Avenue area in Morrellville around 1915. The girl on the right is my grandfather's sister Gene (Lenz) Swank. I wish I knew who the woman in the middle is - along with the girl on the left. I have no idea - they could also be Morrellville folks for all I know.
