1914: LEO SALAMANDRA'S LIQUOR STORE

It took quite a bit of "Photoshopping" to take that center black and white Trenton Evening Times ad and convert it into a work of art. The Salamandra name in the Chambersburg section of Trenton is legendary. The family has added a rich historic presence. There are many, many files in my ever-growing "CHAMBERSBURG" folder in the Local History Collection. Many of them are being assembled in an upcoming on-screen "PowerPoint" type presentation which will be presented to the public in a location yet to be named. Stay tuned.
