Tyrone Pennsylvania, Women With Hats

Daring trio of respectable Tyrone PA ladies, having a little fun, circa 1871 -1887. Photographed by the Stem and Smith studio of Tyrone. I actually visited Tyrone last week and found it to be a beautiful old town. I must have arrived during the rush hour because it sure was a busy place. We spotted the old YMCA, which looks like they're ready to either tear it down or start a major renovation. We also stopped in the library, which has a fantantic room dedicated to Tyrone history and genealogical research (Thank you Mrs. Smith).

I probably never would have seen Tyrone if not for all these old photos left behind by Dad. It was almost like he was riding with us on that trip.
