    The kids on the teeter totter are my dad, George Taylor and my aunt Cleo Taylor. Taylor’s Diner was then owned by my grandfather Ernest Taylor. There is more of this video, I have a vhs copy of it and its very cool

    I really loved this! So great to see that Tamaqua was such an active and vital place long before I was born. If there are anymore it would be great if they showed them during the Tamaqua News Years Eve celebration at the High Rise. Thanks for sharing Newswatch 16!
