"The Altoona native and local history author is celebrating the recent release of "Altoona" a photo essay book that captures the town's life and past through images of never-before-seen vintage postcards from both private and public collections, a release states. The book not only chronicles Altoona from its infancy, but also the railroad industry which founded the city - namely, the Pennsylvania Railroad Company."

Circa 1972.....David Seidel, sitting in member Babe Wahl's kitchen (member Mary Jo Wahl no doubt took the picture), whacking out a newsletter [cutting the stencils] for the Horseshoe Curve Chapter's 'Coal Bucket' on Mary Jo's electric Smith Corona portable [plugged into the stove at 1487 Washington Avenue, Altoona]. According to David, "This was a monthly or bi-monthly ritual, accompanied by Babe's percolated coffee and a superb culinary concoction [usually pie or raisin oatmeal cookies]. YUM ! Babe made the VERY BEST pie crust ever!!"
