1976: Catching some rest

ESU freshman Susan Savage


A warm summer day

Susan Savage, a freshman at East Stroudsburg State College, known now as East Stroudsburg University, played softball with gusto in July 1976, but when she took a breather, she treated the sun with kid gloves

The photo, snapped by a Pocono Record photographer, illustrated that warm days of summer had indeed returned to the Poconos.


 Another 1976 photo:

Yesterdays Photo No. 858

Former paperboy Heinz Rother recognized the youngsters shown in this old photograph. “That is me and twin brother Herman,” he wrote.

When the photo was taken in 1976, Herman, left, and Heinz, both 15, had just been named The Pocono Record’s Professional Carriers for the Month of June.

Heinz started as a paper carrier on April 30, 1973, with 48 subscribers. Seven months later, he took over a larger route of 63 subscribers.

His twin brother, Herman, began Nov. 5, 1973, with 44 subscribers, adding a second route a year later to deliver to 91 subscribers.

Both twins now live in Saylorsburg.
