A little bigger view of a couple......


Andy Laughlin, manager of the American Store in DuBois, Pennsylvania, in 1939. There really were a lot of items in a small area and it wasn't hard to tell what the prices were.

Does it look bigger just because there were no houses?  It looks very large.

We are finding out now that they were never anti-war.  

 

They were anti-Bush.

The absence of both the Lakeside Church ,the Country Club and any cars in the Tannery Dam photo would ,I think, date the shot to 1910 or thereabouts..Also:I'm 70 and remember that old grocery store interior then known as Krogers which occupied part of the space where Joe's Tux shop is now .You had to go up one step and pull open a screen door to get in. Anyway it looked just like that......It's fun to imagine that we could have (and sometimes in winter) gotten as far as Big Run or Falls Creek on that open-sided DuBois Traction Company trolley which is shown stopped next to the Commercial Hotel (later renamed the Pershing after the visit of General Pershing to DuBois). If you caught a cold on the trolley(actually needed antibiotics,etc.)  you lay at home and usually died.Kids and old people commonly died in winter and a black carriage from the funeral carrier came to your parents house after your home funeral ,picked up your body and took it directly to Rumbarger or Mormingside to avoid common contagion like the flu or typhoid ,etc.. Our hospitals were for those with treatable problems  (there were't many of those) and were very crude in comparison to today.

We walked the walkway yesterday and hubby said the DuBois Park used to be in the field behind Martins. He said there was a gazebo and everything.  Are there any photos of that?

My sister in law gave this a while back.  It is of the old  DuBois Barber shop, not sure of the location though.

I started a thread on it, called "Driving Park", what it was always known as. I don't have pictures. but have seen them in the past. I hoped the story in the thread would flush out some of the old pictures.

I think this barber shop was on the first floor of the Logan Hotel which stood where the parking lot now is behind the Park Ave Sheetz. Although not the finest hotel in town ,the Logan featured a good dining room and very reasonable sercice. The Logan stood, though largely in disrepair,up until the nineteen sixties when a vagrant ,who had gotten into one of the old rooms, smoked in bed thereby starting a fire  which destroyed most of the old building which was then razed.

I am now unsure of just which hotel the barber shop in the picture was in.It may however have been in the Hotel DuBois, that hotel which is shown above.The person taking the picture knew that the person looking at him was much more prosperous than he was. No one I knew would have ventured into such a place because we simply couldn't have afforded a two dollar haircut. My father,who worked in one of the banks was accoustomed to paying, at most ,fifty cents and kids usually payed .35.This was even up to the 40's.  During the 30's depression you got your haircuts at home.. The hotels were for travelers and business men who came to town on the train.The highways were rough,slow and very dangerous especially in the winter. It was not easy to get to DuBois from Buffalo or Pittsburgh otherwise.
