Another old classic from the family archives.....me, Mom, and Dad.  Wish that one was in color just to see who had the brightest red hair, me or my Dad.

Old South Custer Road before it was paved. I wonder if there was a Road Commission back then?  8*

Nice pics - I think the old Bridge school is now the Township Hall for Raisinville Twp...   

BTW Fuzz my Grandma grew up during the prohibition and left the farm in Michigan to venture to NYC...   where she was introduced to speak easy's and Marijuana -

I about fell of my chair as a college student when I learned she smoked in her past... as I was interviewing her for a college class project back in 1978(I just ran across the cassette and am trying to figure out a way to digitize it)

I thought the same about the Bridge School.......looks very similar to what is there now.

Interesting venture, Prof.  It seems that generation contained a lot of folks who were truly adventurers in life when it came to breaking away from the farm (or foriegn homelands) to the big cities to explore if there was a better way of life or not.

Some of my family did as well......both sets of maternal grandparents were immigrants (I researched both sides on ellisisland.com years ago and presented the ship logs and passenger lists to my Mom for a Xmas present one year).  Even my Mom at age 24 who was a widow with 2 small children up and moved away from her family to explore......I always admired her courage for that.

I learned much later in life about "shaded" family backgrounds, and after learning about them was able to let me piece together things out of my memory that made it all come together.

The picture below was my immigrant grandfather with his sister, husband, and family.  The sister married an Italian immigrant who later in life became the Head Chef at the Pittsburgh Country Club.  I'm guessing that he made contacts there that may not have been the most law abiding citizens of the area, and his son ended up living a pretty nice life style for a supervisor at a shampoo factory.  It never fit for me as after my Dad passed I spent a lot of time with "Uncle Ernie" at clubs where I saw a lot of hand-kissing and envelopes exchanged.   ;)

In retrospect, it was so typical of "family" and what made it all come together for me was later in life watching "The Saprano's".  Lots of Italian restaurant owners on that side of the family.

I see (from the pictures) that the MCRC has never been worth a shitte...  Some things never change.
