you got me — strange isnt it?

all i can think of is indians fought on both sides during world war two. hitler promised them independence from england and to leave them alone, so maybe they still have a soft spot for the guy? i dk just a guess.

some personal history--this was Champion Jr. High School in Painesville, which was demolished before I was born. However, I recognize, at least so far, three people here who I remember. top row, 3rd man from the left was the principal of my high school, Jack Britt. Middle row, 4th woman in from the right was still a guidance counselor in my high school, Marguerite Lapham. Bottom row, the man 3rd from the left was my science teacher in the 8th grade, William Murdoch,  None of these people are still living, as I doubt anyone in this picture is. Well, maybe the very youngest. All of this means is I'm really old :(

I loved this picture of Philip Roth (at the back of the row on right and published in the NY Times)--who died the other day at 85--at his high school prom in Newark NJ. His old neighborhood in Newark was the location for many of his stories. Brilliant writer, maybe a little troubled :(

TIL -- china 1900 -- as better cameras had come along by the time photography finally reached china, they had no tradition of having to hold still for a long time, which lead to the dour pose you would still see in western photos, even at that time. so their early photos are often more lively/realistic.

I live in Concord, in eastern Lake County and recently uncovered an interesting find on a wooded area of our property. I believe it's an old whiskey jug, but I'm not sure. It was shattered near the base of a tree and only a few pieces were sticking through the soil. It took a fair amount of digging to recover as much of the jug as I did. I was able to find almost the entire front half of the jar. It's from the Strong, Cobb & Company with the address listed as being on Cleveland Central Viaduct, which I believe makes this jug fairly old. I set out the pieces in the attached picture, but if anyone has any more information on this it would be greatly appreciated!

I couldn't download the picture :(, but have you contacted the Lake County History Center? They can probably help :). You're probably only a couple of miles away. It used to be the Lake County Poorhouse.

^Following what @eastvillagedon said, they may be interested in digging a small portion of the area, too. Could be cool!
