Hi everyone, here are the Local History Photos of the week!

(Click on the photos for a larger view)

Photo 1: A Fire In Progress

Our first photo this week is of an official looking brick building that seems to be on fire. There is no indication in the records as to which building this is or when it caught fire — so if you recognize the building please let us know!

Photo 2: The Old Fire Department

Our second photo for this week is of the building that now houses the Rockwell Museum but at one time housed the city fire department — the photo is an oldie but a goodie!

Photo 3:  Horse Drawn Cart with Lumber

Our final photo for this week is of a man in what looks like a World War I era uniform, steering horse drawn cart stacked full of lumber. If you have any stories to share about the lumber industry that once was in full force in our region — please let us know.

Have a great day!

Hi everyone, here are the Local History Photos of the week!

Photo 1: Lumberjacks In Lumbermill

This photo is a bit grainy; however, I think it is cool! It shows a slice of life in days gone by. Specifically, it shows us a bit of the life of lumberjacks/mill workers locally, back in the days when there was a local lumber industry. The photo is undated and features a blank description – so if recognize where the photo was taken please let us know!

Photo 2: Covered Bridge & Field

Our second photo of the week shows a covered bridge and a farmer’s field in fall or winter. Where the covered bridge was is a mystery…

Photo 3: Depression Era House & Car

Our third photo for the week features what appears to be a Depression era house and, what might just be a Ford Model T. I imagine the house has long since gone although if you recognize the location please let us know.

Have a great day!

Photo 1: Postcard Photo Pine Street & Erie Avenue (Denison Parkway)

Photo 1 is a photo of an old postcard that offers a view looking up Pine Street from Erie Avenue (Denison Parkway). I believe that is the old Opera House seen on the right and apparently “Uncle Frank’s office” was near the Opera House…

Photo 2: Susquehanna Trail Monument

Photo 2 is of the Susquehanna Trail Monument although I’ll admit, I don’t know where it is, or was, located. If you know where it was/is located please let us know!

Photo 3: Unknown & Unpaved Street

Photo 3 is of an unknown and unpaved street in the vicinity. If you recognize which street it is — let us know!

Hi everyone, here are the Local History Photos of the week!

Photo 1: Park Hotel, Tioga Pennsylvania

The only real mystery about this photo, of the Park Hotel in Tioga, P.A. — is what year was it taken? Before the streets were paved that much is certain!

Photo 2: A Local Baseball Game

Our second photo for this week shows a local baseball game. And as with the Park Hotel photo, when the photo was taken is a mystery. However, I’m hoping someone will recognize where the photo was taken!

Photo 3: A Family Reunion? 

Our third photo for this week is a group shot, The photo is clear enough to recognize people but there is no info on when and where this photo was taken. So if you recognize anyone in the photo let us know!

Have a great week,

Linda, SSCL
