Two new additions to the Wynning History image archive show scenes in Pottsville and Wiconisco

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.

  1. Hi Jake, I couldn’t get the full-sized image link to work on the Wiconisco photo from 1905-6. Can you send me a link or provide info on the repository? My great grandfather was born there, as well as his parents (Workman, Romberger, Myers). Love Wynning History! Thanks, Jim in Montana
