Remember 'Remember When?'
March 28, 2009 - Bill Ackerbauer
Readers of the print edition of the paper -- we're thinking about rebranding it as "Leader-Herald Classic" or "The Leader-Herald, Inky Antique Edition" -- may notice in Sunday's Leader Extra section the return of the 'Remember When?' feature.
Leader Extra editor Shawn Tomlinson and I are going to try to revive 'Remember When?' as a regular element of the Sunday paper, and we need your help. If you have any old photos of people, places or events in Fulton, Montgomery and southern Hamilton counties, please send them my way with whatever caption information you have. You can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow the "Submit News" link on our homepage to directly upload digital files. If you have prints you'd like to share, you may snail-mail me in care of The Leader-Herald, 8 E. Fulton St., Gloversville, NY 12078. (I will return them on request.)
"How old is 'old?'," you might ask. This is fairly arbitrary, but since I looked at my high school yearbook the other day, and that made me feel extremely old, let's say anything from the 1980s or older shall qualify.
This week I received a nice letter and some vintage photos from Peg Osborne Eddy, a Johnstown native who now lives in Burlington, Vt. Some of the photos she sent are displayed at right. (Click on a photo for a larger view.) Another of Peg's pictures -- not one of these -- will appear in the Leader Extra on Sunday as a 'Remember When?'
