One year ago, July 22, 2013, I published the first Ambridge Memories blog post about my memories of the Laughlin Memorial Library. At the time, I intended to blog about my personal memories growing up in Ambridge in the 1950s and '60s.
Since then, I've added a co-blogger, Robert Giles, and between us, we've posted 105 articles on a wider variety of subjects than I ever imagined when I started the blog. So what started out as "Ambridge Memories 1950 - 1970" has become "Ambridge Memories 1950-1970...and more!"
Then in January of this year, I started the Ambridge List of Lists, now with a long list of pre-1971 businesses, schools, and places of worship. And I continue to add new businesses every week. Starting the list seemed like a good idea at the time, but what an undertaking finding and adding old businesses to the list has turned out to be.
When I'm not writing, I'm doing research and gathering materials to post on the blog. I have some great photos and information to add to the blog in the coming year, so keep reading. And keep sharing your memories and photos of Ambridge.
