Love the Great Valley Rye painted on the building.  Rye is making a great comeback in the country.

In this context is Rye a synonym for rye whiskey or is it advertising rye the seed?. My eye was caught by the massive sign for the dancing school. 


Eric Hansmann
 

It could be either. The 1910 image pre-dates Prohibition.

 

And how knew Malarkey was a dancer?

Whiskey.  Green (not Great) Valley Rye (Whiskey) was a product of Casey Bros. Pennsylvania (or Pennsyltucky, as some like to call it), used to famous for its Rye whiskey.

Here is a match case advertising said Rye

YUMMO? Don't recognize that one. You usually make meanings obvious.

Hey Gang:

At the time the photo was taken, my dad was 10-years old.  At 12, he started working in the D&H coal mines in the area.  I am some what familiar with the Scranton area, but I'm at a loss in trying to place this location.  Would appreciate it, if some could specifically provide me with the location.

Thanks,
Rich Ramik
