Barbara writes that she recently went her Grandfather (C.C.) Boyer's old photograph album which
is entirely about the construction of the old Wayne St. Viaduct (1914-1915). What she found interesting about this picture is that the building in the background has Keystone Hotel written on the side. This building must have been close by.
While in the Netherlands recently I visited the Velvet Cave. During WWII the cave, where I found this soldier's name, had been used as a shelter for the public and also by American Troops. Many soldiers have inscribed their names in this sandstone cave. I knew about this prior to visiting the cave and had been looking to spot where the soldiers wrote their names. The first thing I spotted was "S F Henry Butler PA". At first glance, I thought this was possibly my grandfather Henry Dottle from Butler PA. I was blown away because Butler PA is where I grew up, and I saw it written 2 more times. This was by far the highlight of my trip! I know my Grandfather was actively serving in Europe in 1945 when most of the names were written inside the cave. I will always wonder if he had been there or if he knew the other men from Butler who were.

Greetings Charles, I would imagine that you are aware of the "happening" in Butler this morning. Just in case you haven't seen a picture, I thought I would provide one for you. This was taken first hand, this morning as the Troutman house crawled from Main Street to the new destination on N. McKean Street. Carol Foster
