I posted before about Foxburg and the first town down the Allegheny River, Parker, Pennsylvania. Since both sets of my Grandparents lived along that River (one set in Phillipston and one set in Foxburg), I got to see both places and the near by towns quite often. When my Dad drove us to Foxburg, we went through Parker. Parker was sort of divided in two. The upper part started way up on the river hill and extended down and along the river. There was a glass plant along the river that made bottles and, I think, jars. That was the days before everything came in plastic. Back then, plastic was the exception other than the rule. I was back there a few years ago and took some pictures, but I don't have any of the old factory. This factory is the Wightman Bottle & Glass Mfg. Co. It is located on the lower part of town along the river. That area was called Parker's Landing.
By the way, Parker had the distinction of being the "Smallest City in the U.S.A. Parker was incorporated as a city on March first, 1873, back during the Pennsylvania oil boom.
Sorry I am so late getting this posted but I have been really sick. It started on Friday and kept getting worse up through today. If I don't start feeling better in a few days I will have to go to the doctor. My hematologist told me to see him or my family doctor if I even got a sniffle, since I was diagnosed with a form of leukemia. Well I got more than just a sniffle or two and, no, I haven't called the doctor. I am not one to be running to doctors. Guess I am just stubborn. What can they do for a bad cold, anyway? Hope all of you are well and have a great day, you hear?
