My thanks!
Saul and Sam Weisman and Mary Manning Manchester NH
Rare photo-- Sam and Saul (or Saul and Sam) Weisman/Waisman circa 1945. They ran two businesses, the Howe Street Garage at 450 Howe Street near where A-1 Auto is to repair cars. They also owned Cy's Auto Parts & Used Cars at 268 Elm in Manchester NH. I am pretty sure this photo was taken at the dealership on Elm Street. Pictured here in the middle, between the Weisman brothers, is my mom, then Mary Manning who was their accountant for a few years.



Photograph of my Uncle, Francis "Fran" Manning on a pony delivering the Merrimack Valley Sun. It must have been taken before or around 1927, as Fran was born in 1917. I am not sure of the location, if anyone recognizes this. He was borna and grew up in Manchester NH so it had to be in the vicinity.



Rev. George Albert Guertin (February 17, 1869 – August 6, 1931 along with a postcard photograph of the OLD St. Antoine (Saint Anthony's) Church and Rectory
Here is a wonderful Youtube video, with the song, "Streets of Manchester," that is a great blending of the old and the new.

#56 Streetcar / Trolley on the Manchester & Valley Street line, Manchester NH, taken prior to 1940 when streetcar service ended. [Produced in Manchester Street Railway shop in 1915-1916, equipped for one-man operation in 1924, remaining in service until 1940.]

Per June Page Saxon: "I found an old post card from my uncle to his mother that told about this camping trip. It was mailed from Greenfield, NH but I don't know if that is where these pictures were taken or not. The card was dated 1914. My father was a boy scout--Ernest V. Page. I think his older brother Ivo C. Page was the scout master."
