|"Boys in the town in front of Greek coffee shop"|
278 First St.?
Photographer: Arthur Rothstein
Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division
Thanks to Tom Boudros, AHS '67, I now have names of some of the boys and men in one of the oft-seen Ambridge photos taken by photojournalist Arthur Rothstein in 1938:
Sitting in front of the window, left to right are: Steve Hopak; Mike "Junior" Tesnovich; unidentified; "Hepack."
Inside looking out of the window: left to right, Harry Bellas; unidentified; unidentified; Jimmy Pappas.
If you know the names of the unidentified boys and men in the photo, or "Hepack's" full name, or have memories of the coffee house, please leave a comment.
I believe this is the Greek Coffee Shop that was once at 278 First St.
