The Times News Building at 23/25 Race Street put out the welcome banner during the 1947 celebration of Old Home Week in the Mauch Chunks.

The circa 1870 Times House Bed and Breakfast has a proud history, which we have been able to learn more about thanks to Anne Genshart, daughter of Gertrude Apfelbaum and granddaughter of Times News founder James J. Boyle.

Anne shared photos and old newspaper clips with us on a recent visit.  The photo above shows Anne (far right) and other children playing outside the old Times News building at 23/25 Race Street during the 1947 celebration of Old Home Week in the Mauch Chunks, which was celebrated from July 27 through August 2, 1947.

This post is one of several that will document the history of the newspaper, the building and the Boyle Family. Here is a photo of Gertrude herself at work and a link to her May 26, 1972 column in the Times News  that talks about the sale of the building.
