In recent weeks, we’ve added two images to our small, but growing archive of historical images of the Coal Region.
The first is a postcard view of the historic Morris Building in downtown Pottsville, home to the Dives, Pomeroy, and Stewart department store and the Gowen Post #23 of the Grand Army of the Republic. The postcard was post-marked in 1910.
The next image was taken in 1905 or 1906 on Pottsville Street in Wiconisco Township, Dauphin County. This community is near and dear to my heart, as I trace much of my family tree to Wiconisco, my grandparents still live there, and I grew up just east in Williamstown.
