Shown here are two signs that appear to be from the 1940s. They feature “pin-up” style girls and their names. We believe that they had something to do with Yetter’s Chevrolet. If you have any information on what they were used for, or what they signified, please contact us via email or telephone. Thank you!

Shown here are 43 students from the 7th and 8th grade classes of the Beavertown grade school from 1937, and their teacher, Mr. “Pach” Walker. Most of the students shown are now deceased. Some that are among the living are Curtis Umholtz, Goldie Ritter, Betty Saylor, Bill Saylor, and Paul Goss. It is interesting to note that most of the young boys shown here were destined to fight for our country in World War II.
