This is another theme that I have been planning on since last August when we kicked off the 52 week challenge. I knew that we would be going up to New York for Barb’s 50th high school reunion and that there would be time to get a few snaps in “My Hometown”. So – with no further ado, here we go:
Population 37,500 in the 2010 census.
My dad bought this house in the mid 1940’s and I grew up here. Since he sold the house in 1974, the new owners have put on at least 3 additions.
My elementary school. My mom and I both attended school here, she in the 1920’s and I attended in the late 40’s and early 50’s. We even had a couple of the same teachers.
My church. When Barb and I were married here in 1968, there were about 500 members. Now the membership has shrunk to about 40. How sad.
Sal & Vin’s Barber Shop. Note that it was established in 1952. This business hasn’t changed in appearance in 62 years. Still looks like it did back in the day when I got my hair cut there.
And there you have it. I hope you enjoyed “My Hometown” in pictures. This visit sure brought back a lot to reminisce about.
