‘Memories of Emporium in the ‘60s’


I’ve been regularly reading the Echo for the past 5 years since Mom moved in with us in Florida.  I especially enjoy reading about relatives and classmates, the trivia column, and excerpts from the Cameron County Press.

Regarding pinball machine discussion.  In the early ‘60s, Luigi’s always had one and it cost a nickel for 5 balls.   I even own one similar to one of those I played.  Sam Schwab reopened his store on Woodland Ave. for a while, and he had several machines.  If I ever need to swear a blue streak, all I need to do is channel my inner Sam Schwab.  Speaking of Luigi’s, what a thrill it was to hear your name during his sponsored Sunday radio program.  The prize was a bag of penny candy.
