More vintage pictures from Frank Barning's early Levittown archives

Click on photos to enlarge

There are hundreds of early Levittown photos in my files, a treasure chest of images. Many have been used to compliment stories that have been posted in our blog, and others will lend themselves to articles yet to be written. At the same time there are many that don't seem to have a fit, often because there is little or no information for a caption.

Old Levittown photos that seem to be especially pleasing are class and team photos, but not every one I receive includes a list of the kids depicted. The choir photo posted here, for example, has so many people in it that listing all the names is impossible. Hey, it's not easy to remember people you last saw more than a half century ago.

The black and white photos posted above are part of our town's amazing history.

* Levittown Community Church confirmation class. Approximately 1956. Photo courtesy of Pat Raynor, class of 1962.

* 1957 photo taken at Cliff Fromm's 14th birthday party. In front, Mal Karman. In back (left to right) John Koehler, Cliff Fromm, the late Steve Lilienthal, Don Florman and Geoff Eisenbarth. All graduated in 1960 except Florman, class of 1961.

* Phyllis (class of 1960) and Johnny Cotter. Johnny seems to be having a good time with his big sister. Approximately 1958.

*Debbie Cooper and Susan Kilbride (class of 1962) in 1958.

*Sister Seraphina's catechism class at St. Bernard's school of religion 1952-53. Photo compliments of Lillian Smith, class of 1962.
