Talk:Scranton General Strike[edit]

I have posted a RfC that may be of interest to this project. The article is new and doesn't have many eyes on it currently. Any input is welcome. TimothyJosephWood 12:57, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

Weatherly, Pennsylvania discrepancy[edit]

On the Weatherly PA wikipage, you have a statement saying that the town was named after David Weatherly in exchange for a clock: that the clock was built into the tower of the school. This seems unlikely as the name change took place in 1863, and the school was not built until 1901-1903. You may want to verify this information as it contradicts the weatherlypa.gov page.70.44.235.137 (talk) 06:55, 21 May 2016 (UTC)

North Wales historical building[edit]

  The photo shown before this was actually begun as the Weingartner cigar factory . I knew it well from the late 1930s When it was called" The Cigar Store ' by the locals  , later named the North Wales News Agency . The owner at that time was a Mr. Naylor . During WW 2 the owner was a Mr' Phillips  , and after the war it was Luther Thomas , whom I delivered papers for   ----  The Philadelphia Evening Bulletin , the Philadelphia Morning Inquirer , and the North Penn Reporter . I left North Wales for California in 1948 . I will never forget this building and some of the happiest days of my life !! Thanks a million to whoever entered the beautiful photo of this building !!!!! It was so much of my personal history . Bill Tomlinson , Barstow , California      junkmen45@san.rr.com    Please let me hear from anyone with similar interests in that building and the history of North Wales in the 1930s and 1940s . Thank you !!!  — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.75.25.110 (talk) 21:26, 28 June 2016 (UTC) 
Please see https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:North_Wales,_Pennsylvania for 9 more photos of the same building. You should thank @Nyttend: for placing the photo in the article. The photo was taken in 1993 by James W. Scott of the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) - your tax dollars at work.
Now for the good part: you can get the same photos at the Library of Congress website http://www.loc.gov/pictures/collection/hh/item/pa3312/ and a jam-packed one page history of the building at http://cdn.loc.gov/master/pnp/habshaer/pa/pa3300/pa3312/data/pa3312data.pdf
I'll e-mail this. Smallbones(smalltalk) 00:45, 29 June 2016 (UTC)

Please re-evaluate article rating?[edit]

Team, I recently significantly expanded the article from FRED FRANKHOUSE from 3 uncited lines to what it is currently. I'm asking that the article be reevaluated for class rating, and for suggestions as to what I can do to improve the article. Thanks. --JGHSMC (talk) 04:39, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
