Overview


Cearfield brings to life a time when carriages traveled the streets, lumber floated down the river, William Jennings Bryan visited Curwensville, Houtzdale's "Alley Popper" railway was running, and people enjoyed fine dining and dancing at the Dimeling Hotel. Postcards, once a convenient and easy way to communicate, inadvertently became an important way of preserving history. The cards of this exciting new collection bear witness to many moments in Clearfield history, including World War I soldiers marching down Market Street, the 1936 flood, the collapse of the Nichols Street Bridge, and the aftermath of the Opera House fire.
