Mayor Myrick and Ithaca Police being interviewed after a truck lost control on one of the hills leading into downtown and crashed into a building. Sadly a young, pregnant waitress was killed in the collision.

Getting the flock out of town



https://www.flickr.com/photos/w3tua/...-22001166@N00/


The info below is about the next pic (however this restaurant is now a bank)

Lehigh Valley Railroad passenger station, Ithaca, NY May 1992. Ithaca, with a population of about 30,000 had three rail passenger stations. At the time this picture was taken, almost 40 years after passenger service ended, all three were still in use. Two were restaurants, one a bus station.Scan from 35mm slide.
