Hi Leonard, I am still enjoying your reliving the streets and buildings in Newcastle and as  my  many years living in and  near most all of those mentioned, I can recall some things that are not mentioned in your articles.  In last week’s paper in regard to the building 15 S. Sumner, when it was   The News Paper, I remember folding papers each Wednesday night for next day delivery & how it took  months to get the ink from beneath my fingernails.  Now after the news paper moved,  Mister George Wade opened a shoe repair in the building.  Sometime later he sold the business to Jim Copeland who owned it for a short while.  My brother Doug came home from the Navy in the mid 50’s and bought the business & called  it the Boot & Saddle  shop which he operated until moving the business over on S. Seneca St. into the Ward Lumber building.  Just little things I remember which are not important and mean nothing to readers in the younger generation & to people not living there in those years.  Thank Leonard and keep up
the history.
