This is a great picture. In the early fifties there were banks on opposite corners, Sun Drug and a five and dime store on the other corners. I remember every Saturday night the Sunday paper wes sold by young boys at this site. It was a town alive with joy.

Tom: That photo looks like it was taken in the thirties and if I remember, Fifth ave. ran North and South. It looks like a shot facing up fifth Ave. (North) at Ninth St. That was the first National Bank on the left.

Howdy Sam, I'm wondering about the movie theater marquees that hung out over the sidewalks. I think some of them must have been there in the 30's. I'd love to see pics of those colorful marquees. That postcard may be earlier than the 30's. I know they were there in the early 40's.

I copied the post card and enlarged it. There are a couple of trucks/cars in the image that could easily date to the teens or '20s.

When I was five (1935 -36)I lived one block over on Fourth ave. between Eighth and Ninth St. I don't remember much except the five and dime on the corner. I rode the trolley to Tarentum.

Trying to locate the whereabouts of Catherine, John Joseph, Clara, and Suzanne Kaminski, the children of Catherine Eagin Kaminski. Any of these names sound familiar?
