Anyone out there with photo's of Homestead in the 1950's showing the stores along 8th avenue. I grew up in Homestead Park and didn't have the interest or money to do the photo shooting. I now own a Transportation Museum and collect photo's of the local area. You don't miss something till its gone forever. I worked at Kennywood in 1953 till 1955 and have found photo's that show the old park were you could walk around ,free, and see the lagoon shows with a box of popcorn. Contact me at
