Great photo. Looks like it was taken in the days of the ferry. I remember riding it across the bridge with my uncle, Paul Heister, when I was about 8 or 9. My uncle, Charles (Chick) Heister, worked for ALCOA for many years. My uncle, Art Younghans, and my Dad, Ed, worked on Fourth Ave at the New Kensington Auto Parts, owned by my grandfather, August.

I forgot about the ferry so that was a mind twister in my memory bank. Do you remember where it crossed? It seems the trolly could be accessed going to Tarentum or Springdale. I took it to the movies in Springdale and also to shop at the stores in Tarentum. Once in a while, some of this comes back and flicks a switch. Did you go to Ken Hi? I have not been able to place a face, but I know we have crossed lines at some point. I may be a little older, but not much. I assume your move is completed and you are ready for the next phase. BB

Sorry, didn't mean to twist anyone's mind. I goofed! I meant to write "trolly" and somehow "ferry" came up. I went to Third Ward and then to Ken Hi. we moved to Springdale during my eighth grade at Ken Hi.
that was in 1942-3. During the war.
