I was born in Elizabeth, then the family moved away. On Jan. 1st, 1957, two of my brothers and I moved back when our mother died. We lived on Oak Hill, next to the Cavanaugh houses.Later I lived in an apartment on the 3rd floor of the Pittsburgh National Bank building until 1981.I used to fish in the Mon nearly every night in the summer; when I was fishing one night (1961?)I saw a sternwheel towboat churning south on the river. I think that was the last run of the last sternwheel boat on the Mon.We used to fish from the `butments south of the Marine Ways, until they burned down; all that was left was a huge stack of driftwood.I went to Wylie School for the 7th grade, then to 8th grade at Elizabeth-Forward Junior High on Town Hill.I remember the 1st time we went to the Grand Theater. As a 13-year old `adult`, I had to pay 30 cents for my ticket; I was shocked!In the winter the County paid me $1.25 per hour to shovel cinders in the mornings on the steep snow-covered road from Route 51 to the top of Oak Hill. I used some of that cash to buy plastic airplane models at the G.C. Murphy 5&10; they cost $.99 & $1.99.I worked for six years at Bargain Corner on Rte. 51, which was owned by Joe & Abe Horowitz - fine bosses.~~~ Enough for now ~~~
