Time capsule: Meet you at Melba’s?

Gadfly invites your photos of local interest

3rd and Pierce, looking south, 1967. Is Melba’s what was most recently the Happy Tap?

The near building on the left was an auto repair shop, soon to be
Country Club Brewing.

Ross Benavides 1967

A neighbor who does “clean outs” salvaged this watercolor from a scrap heap some years ago, and it ended up in my attic. I am doing my own “clean out” now and wonder if anybody or group would like to have this dusty old local work of art.

Benavides was president of the Bethlehem Palette Club, and his address given on the back is 2126 Rodgers.
