  3. I'd take it to a knowledgeable photo processor, like Swigart's. They can tell a lot about a photo by the type of paper and process used.
  4. $1.09 at Punxsy Comet, $1.49 at Martin's.
  5. It's a shame that I was too young to appreciate the neat architectural features of that building when I was in 7th grade. I do recall the big hall on the second floor, under that dome, with the windows around the top. That was sort of cool even in my young mind.
  6. I think the heirlooms are over rated. I agree with lavender on them being harder to grow, especially with any consistency. And maybe it is just my taste buds, but for taste I'll take a Big Boy or Supersteak on my tomato sandwich over any heirloom I've ever tasted.
  7. Grub Grubs do most of their work below ground, where they live through that stage of their life. Slug Slugs are not burrowers, they attack plants, and fruit, above ground.
  8. I had two hard frosts last week, nothing would have made it. I think it's safe now, hopefully.
  9. This is fantastic! Good year round, but better in the summer with fresh homegrown tomatoes, dill and cucumbers.

  10. Another one just showed up on ebay, if anyone is interested.
  11. That picture is down in the "Flats". Not sure of the street name, but in behind Prontock's. Check out this thread... http://www.godubois.com/cgi-bin/blah/index.cgi?m-1222809374/ for more Helvetia pictures.
  12. I am quite certain it would have been a coal tipple, or loading platform of sorts. That area, the hill behind the old Brockway Ford, was strip mined in the late 70's, maybe early 80's. If it is older than that it could be from earlier deep mines. I'm not sure if any shafts came out on that side of the hill, but most likely.
  13. Do you have a book about those railroads Ed, or is it a combination of different articles and pictures?
  14. I grew the hybrid Brandywines last year...Brandy Boy. Wanted to try them since they were supposed to have the same flavor as Brandywines, which I had never tried but heard such praise for. Without a doubt they were the most tasteless tomato I have ever grown, in over 40 years of growing tomatoes. I agree with Lavenders "watery" assessment of the flavor. I'm done experimenting, going back to tomatoes that I know will taste good.
  15. After Ed posted that History of Reynoldsville, I thought I'd do some searching for on-line books. I found the first volume of McKnight's "Jefferson County, Her Pioneers and People" It is over 300 pages of some very detailed history of Jefferson County. For those interested in hunting, the section that begins on page 112 gives descriptions of, and methods used to harvest, the game of this area in the early days. Then, starting on page 126, there is a great section, with some entertaining stories, on the most notable hunters of the era, including Bill Long. Lots of great reading...... http://books.google.com/books?id=uRYVAAAAYAAJ&printsec=titlepage
  16. Here's another oldie. Marketing genius from days gone by...."Brewed as a Food and Tonic"........ "Especially for Family Use"
  17. No, not really. The book doesn't have pictures.
  18. If anyone is interested in the History of Beechwoods, this book by James Sterrett is a must have. They pop up every once in awhile on ebay, as one did today. Here is the link if you are interested.......... DARN IT !!!.........I HATE WHEN THAT HAPPENS.... A link full of smileys. Well trust me, it's there and the auction ends on the 9th. Just search "Beechwoods"
  19. The Presbyterian Church is located on the corner of Scribner Ave and High Street, behind the Gray Foundation Apartments.
  20. Here is Courier-Express article, from a couple years back, that gives more detail on the history of the newspaper. 04/07/2006 History of our Newspapers The history of the Courier-Express begins within a decade of the start of the history of DuBois, where it is located. In 1872, John DuBois came to the then-village of Rumbargertown to start his lumbering operations and eventually to have the city named after him. Seven years later, Bion H. Butler founded the Weekly Courier, printed at what is now Brady and Scribner streets. J.A. Johnston took over from Butler and published the weekly newspaper until Oct. 20, 1884. On that date, E.W. Gray and E.S. Gray bought the newspaper. One year earlier, in 1883, a competitor appeared. The Express was organized by Frank McMichael and H.C. Wilson, and appeared in October as a weekly. Four years later, on Jan. 2, 1888, the weekly newspaper became a daily newspaper, the DuBois Morning Courier, founded by E.W. Gray and Co.. In 1900, it became incorporated as Gray Printing Company. It was located in a small office at the rear of Brady Street and East Long Avenue, until the fire of June 18, 1888 destroyed its office as well as most of downtown DuBois. That same fire destroyed the Pettigrew Building offices of the Express. At that time, the only source of news outside DuBois was to "clip," actually plagiarize, the news from the large-city daily newspapers and reprint it 12 hours later. On June 14, 1889, the Morning Courier moved into the Hight Building, where it stayed until 1926, then moving to West Long Avenue and High Streets. A Universal cylinder press was installed, first powered by steam, later by a gas engine and finally by electricity. About 1905, the first Linotype typesetting machine was installed, replacing the practice of setting each letter of each line of type by hand. During the same time, the Express moved into the Knarr Building on Brady Street and, in 1890, was bought by David Reams. Another fire, this one in 1898, left the Express homeless again. It later moved into new quarters in the former Bob's Army and Navy Store building. In 1895, the Express became a daily newspaper with Charles H. Redfern as editor. In 1897, V. King Pifer became editor. In 1904, H.H. Rutter was the editor. In 1906, David C. Whitehill bought the Express, and W.B. Ross became its editor. Early in the 1900s, the Morning Courier joined the Associated Press "pony" service, which consisted of several western Pennsylvania newspapers being hooked up to a "reader" in Pittsburgh who dictated news in two 15-minute periods to be transcribed by typewriter by editors in the half-dozen cities where the local papers were located. In 1909, A.E. Hasbrook bought an interest in the Express and changed its name to the Daily Express. In 1914, E.S. Gray sold his interest in the Morning Courier. In 1921, H.T. Gray entered the business and in 1923, J.S. Gray entered the business at the time of the death of E.W. Gray. On May 16, 1927, the Gray Publishing Company took over the Daily Express. The two newspapers were published as separate newspapers for 17 years, with J.S. Gray editor of the Express, W.B. Ross the editor of the Morning Courier. A Courier-Express retrospective published in 1957 said the Courier was generally recognized as "dry" (promoting Prohibition) and Republican, while the Express was "wet" (against Prohibition) and Democratic. The two newspapers became one newspaper during 1944 when World War II shortages of newsprint and workers forced the consolidation. W.B. Ross retired as editor in 1953, and F.I. Gillung was editor until 1956. George Waylonis became the editor in 1956 and Marvin Bloom became general manager. In 1957, the newspaper installed a 32-page Hoe press, doubling its previous 16-page printing capacity. In the 1980s, Jason Gray became publisher. In 1988, the newspaper was sold to McLean Publishing Co. of Bryn Mawr, Pa. The parent company, Independent Publications Inc., also owns daily newspapers in Geneva, N.Y., and Nashua, N.H., and operates a commercial printing business, Evergreen Printing, in Bellmawr, N.J., as well as Independence Communications Inc., a sound and communications business with offices in Pennsylvania, Virginia and North Carolina. Independent Publications Inc. is owned by William L. McLean III, a third-generation newspaperman, and his family. Andrew Bickford is its executive vice-president. In 1990, McLean Publishing Co. bought the Jeffersonian Democrat and the Brookville American, each one a weekly newspaper published in Brookville, Jefferson County, by the McMurray Printing Co. Kenneth Frizell became publisher and Dennis J. Bonavita became editor. In 1993, the McLean newspapers pooled their resources and founded Tri-County Sunday. In 1995, W. Dock Lias became publisher. In 1998, McLean Publishing Co. bought The Leader-Vindicator of New Bethlehem. In 2001, Dennis J. Bonavita became publisher and Nick Hoffman became managing editor. http://www.thecourierexpress.com/site/news.cfm?newsid=16445686&BRD=2758&PAG=461&dept_id=577644&rfi=6
  21. I am quite certain they are Grouse. If you look closely you can see the black "ruffs" on many of the birds. No long tails for pheasants, and they weren't stocked in Pennsylvania before 1915. Much of that area had been timbered and was in the "red brush" stage, wonderful grouse cover. I've heard, from long since gone old-timers, tales of the glory days for "Ruffed Grouse" in that area.
  22. I believe that the old road, from Coke Hill to Lake Ren
