  1. Did anyone go to the meeting at the Brockwayville Depot? I forgot about it.
  2. I believe that these three photos and the Acme market in the message forum are from the same flood and in the same area. The Acme market and the gas station are very close to each other.
  3. Any information will be welcomed!
  4. Thank you for your interest in this photo! I did a little research. According to wikipedia, spam.com, and roadsideamerica.com, Spam was introduced to the public on 7-5-1937, so 1936 is probably not the correct date for this photo. Unless, could it be that Spam was sold in stores before it was officialy introduced? Other possible years mentioned were 1946 and 1953. I am going to add some photos to the history thread that were almost certainly taken the same day. They were in the same area and the negatives were together in the box. I would appreciate any comments about the photos.
  5. If 1936 is correct, the negative I scanned is almost 75 years old and still has amazing detail. The year 1936 would also be a good reason I don't remember Acme being there, I was not yet born. I do remember the Chinese laundry and a few other stores just beyond the photo on Franklin St.
  6. I know the location but not the year. Until I saw this photo, I had no idea there was ever an Acme there.
  7. The car is a Packard, not a Hudson. I don't remember parking meters there. My guess for this photo is early 50's.
  8. Reynoldsville flood. March 17, 1936 was written on the back of one photo.
