Great old photos, thanks for posting. Do you know what year the photo from the camp on Cemetery Road was taken and where was the location of the camp along the road, possibly close to the Whig Hill Cemetery. I believe that camp is next to my place.

Love the pics in the old red and black Woolwrich.....Found my grand dad's. Only one thing in the pockets as I checked it out.....A rolled up bundle of wire ties from old Glad trash bags. Guessing he was hoping to fill one last tag the last time he wore it....

Trash at camp was always rough back in the 80's. The ties were always missing from the box LOL...

Those are super pics, CAMsm. If you'd like to, I'd invite you to post the ones from the Allegheny National Forest to the Facebook page for my book: www.Facebook.com/ASeasonontheAllegheny

As the name indicates, the book is about the Allegheny National Forest - about hunting on the ANF, to be specific- so we're always happy to get some pictures posted there. These older ones are real gems in my mind so I'd certainly welcome them.

Thank you. I honestly don't know where the camp is/was along Cemetery Road. I took a trip there a few years ago, but before I really looked at these pictures unfortunately. The picture was taken in 1946. Here's another one of the camp that may help you identify it. If it's still standing, please let me know, I'd love to see it in person!


It was named "Half a cup camp", sure it's changed by now!

Thanks for posting the pics. They're really cool. If anyone else on here has hunting-related pictures from the Allegheny National Forest, I invite you to post them on our Facebook page as well.

As for the book, I'm glad you enjoyed it. It was most definitely a labor of love on my part. There's pretty much nowhere I'd rather be than on the ANF.
