Fire in 1910 caused excitement in 1910


First Posted: 5/3/2013

Bernie Stiroh of the history website, duryeapa.com, submitted this photo of Duryea folks out on the street during a large fire in 1910 in the 500 block of Main Street.

Note Main Street is dirt. Note the dogs roaming free. The women are wearing long dresses and the men are wearing hats. Cameras in those days could not stop action, so you’ll see blurred images of people running or walking quickly.
