Joe Johns

VJ Repeat just because I really like this shot of Joe Johns.

Zenith Rado - 1940

I still have this radio - Zenith Super-8 from 1939 and it's in perfect working order. Years ago my father rewired it for me. One time I was listening to this radio when a friend of mine stopped over. I showed him the radio and he asked where is the FM button - I said this was built before FM - there isn't one - he just couldn't believe it.

Got Stone

Berkebile-Gabriel - Granite and Marble - 61 Iron Street

Lower Works

This is how most people remember the mills in Johnstown - taken from Brownstown Hill looking down to McConaughy Street with all the houses and across the river to Iron Street and Bethlehem Steel. This was taken before Roosevelt Blvd was built in the 1920's. 
Stone Bridge on far right. Second bridge was also for trains and third is where you can walk or ride across to Iron Street.

Trolley Time

Chandler and Strayer at Clark's Dairy Store.

Do Bee

Romper Room Do Bees


You don't run across too many old shots like this of Grandview Cemetery from the air.


The Oakland Motor Car Dealer in Johnstown. The car company was a division of General Motors after buying Oakland in 1909. The company continued to produce mid-priced vehicles until 1931 when it was absorbed into Pontiac. Thought I spotted someone standing in the window.....

Penn Traffic

Penn Traffic - this is an old picture I scanned in - might have been made for a brochure.

Just heading to Main Street. The old Capital Hotel is was where all the cars are parked - there is a parking garage there now. The office building right behind the trolley is the old Bethlehem G.O.
