It was an era when the trolley still ran to Alameda Park… shopping Jaffe’s on main street of Butler’s downtown dressed in your best suit or fancy hat was the norm… and Sunday mornings were reserved solely for church-going.
Isaly’s store served ice cream, and if you had some extra money from delivering the Eagle, well… that’s where you went. You woke every morning to the smell of fresh baking bread from Diehl’s on the South Side, and Stoughten’s Beach was where the whole family went on vacation.
It was 1940, and the age comes alive again in Butler 1940: The Lions Club Films. A rare look at life in our big city during that year; all brilliantly preserved and newly re-mastered on DVD from the original 16mm films.
If you were there, or you know and love someone who was, this trip to the past will be the perfect gift.
