Immigrants established some of the earliest organizations in Ambridge. Each sizable ethnic group had a club, or more than one.
This photo shows the members of Ambridge's Croatian Fraternal Union, St. Nicholas Lodge No. 304, at the organization's 20th Anniversary celebration in 1924.
Robyn Hrvoich Cubakovic's cousin, Danica Hrvojic, who was a two-year-old toddler being held by her father, Stjepan, when the photo was taken, gave her the photo. She's the little blond girl in the upper far left.
Update March 5, 2015: The building in the photo wasn't in Ambridge according to this comment left on March 4. Thank you, Rob!:
"The original Croatian Home Lodge 304 was at 327 Merchant St. The original picture is at the CFU Home Office in Wilkins Twp.
