Papa’s World – with family at the Durham Bulls Triple AAA baseball game!

What a nice baseball park in Durham N.C.

It was Casey’s birthday – we went boating and now to watch the baseball game!

It turned out the crowd size was announced at 8400 fans!

That is quite a crowd for a minor league game.

It had all the things you see in a minor league game with between innings entertainment!

They got the fans involved by having different contests – the scoreboard was fantastic and had another one in right field.

The man here was adjusting cameras for the scoreboard and we sat right on the third base line!

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – Growing up Eldred Pa. Part Five

1800 ‘s Eldred Pa.

There was industry in Eldred Pa.

Manufactured Glass – two that I know of !

Both were located where the elementary school is now

and either by the park or Park Avenue.

Elementary school where the glass factory was

They were long gone when I was growing up –

but I heard about them.

Looking up Barden Brook

My time was spent many long days at this ball diamond –

and to the right – beyond the little building for the bathrooms –

was Barden Brook Creek !

I would play in the water there – catching craw fish –

and just on the other side –

were a myriad of dirt paths –

heading off into the woods –

I was scared to venture far –

and I remember them branching off in different directions.

Park Avenue and Mechanic street

Many of my grade school classmates lived in this area –

I was from the other side of town

North Main Street –

North Main Street Eldred Pa.

Slavin’s furniture was the big white building on the left –

To the right – the red building – the Fire Hall

And just up from that – The Masonic Hall –

Doctor’s office and the dentist office.

On the left side is now the Eldred Museum

with a tank coming out of the wall –

That was Frisbee’s Insurance when I was growing up

He always sent me a birthday card as we had the same birthdays !

You can just barley see my house on the left

5 or 6 houses up the street

This is where I played – roller skated

rode my bike –

South Main Street

I had to walk all the way down this street from North Main Street

to go to school – as far as you can see on the left –

I would guess it to be over a mile.

Eldred school – grades one through twelve.

I went four grades here before the new grade school was completed

and at that time the three towns

Eldred – Rixford and Duke Center along with Eldred Township

formed one school district –

Otto -Eldred High School – grades 7 through 12 .

Terri – Tom ( me ) – Mike
