Just North of my home is the historic Coal Mining town of Tamaqua that has been a important place of history in the early 20th century. I have been here once or twice before, but this time there have been some little changes to the area where Coal was King long ago. This is theContinue reading “TAMAQUA RE-VISITED”

TRACTORS OF THE PAST
One of the things I do, on occasion, is grab my camera gear and take a drive around the many back country roads that are in/around my area. There are so many of them. So many that I can get lost on them, and really not sure where I am. A portion of the roadsContinue reading “TRACTORS OF THE PAST”
DREIBELBIS STATION COVERED BRIDGE REVISITED.
Greetings all! This Post was made before about the Dreibelbis Station Covered Bridge that is located about a 1/2 hr. drive away for me in a town named Lenhartsville, PA. The difference with this post is that this Bridge has been repaired & made to look much better than it was before. The image aboveContinue reading “DREIBELBIS STATION COVERED BRIDGE REVISITED.”
ANOTHER COVERED BRIDGE
This is just another Image of the Covered Bridges in my area. Out of the picture to the left is the old Flour Mill that still stands after more than 200 yrs. Covered Bridges here in the area are very well kept in repair all the time. They are important structures from our past. ThankContinue reading “ANOTHER COVERED BRIDGE”
Pictured here is the old Eplers 1-room schoolhouse that was built in 1847. This school was originally at another location not very far away in Bern Twp. It also was scheduled to be destroyed by a wrecking ball, until some residents fought to have it preserved for History. After many months of meetings with thoseContinue reading “EPLERS SCHOOL”

Fleetwood, PA is my ole’ hometown and where I went to High School. The Plant was formed in 1909. Fleetwood Auto bodies were made here until 1931Continue reading “MY HOME TOWN”
This is what remains of the old Frey 1-room School House. This old 1-room school was in use when I was in High Scool back in the early 60’s. Grades from 1 – 8 were taught here by a Mr. Gehert, a teacher I’ve never known. Just how old this school is I really don’tContinue reading “SCHOOL DAYS”
No longer used, this passenger car wastes away into History.
Now, how does this thing work? I happen to be paging thru some of my Images that I had forgotten about. I came across this one that I took last year at the Daniel Boone Homestead Festival. I was just walking around and taking a look at what was there. Walked around the old BarnContinue reading “SPINNING REEL”
Photographed on the 2nd floor of the old High School. Last summer I made a drive over to my old High School to see if what I had been told about that my school was Haunted! I sort of did not believe it and that’s what I wanted to find out for sure. My oldContinue reading “HAUNTED HALLWAY”
