I recently received the note below from my bud, Will Valentino, of Palmyra Historical & Cultural Society.
Hope you had a great summer. ! Attaching a photo for your blog of a MILLSIDE FARMS half pint bottle I dug in my back yard in 2002 when I first moved here. Please let your readers know that BACK IN TIME , will return to THE POSITIVE PRESS in October after a brief summer sabbatical!
The Millside Farms bottle is featured in the article which discusses historical artifacts found in your backyard and underfoot ! The half pint “cream top ” bottle is date / patented March 3, 1925! Probably not the healthiest of beverages chosen on a summer day to cool off I would think !
Look for the October issue of THE POSITIVE PRESS around October 8th in your mailboxes, at local stores and on line !
Umm… I think autumn has arrived, Will. At least the leaves in Riverton think it has.
There you will find showcased 30 images related to that familiar span and a heart-warming story by a collector who tells of his connection to the bridge in A Small Metal Object Links Father and Son to an Event and Ignites a Passion for History.
Maybe you have a connection to the bridge, too. – JMc
