Looking Back

Comments: 0

In today’s paper, the Roanoke Times offers “Looking Back” as it does every Sunday. Two things caught my eye:

n First Presbyterian Church had a Friendship Quilt that was made in 1892. It contained 20 squares commemorating volunteer fire departments, fraternal organizations and other insignia of Roanoke.


n “Thirteen firemen were injured, none seriously, when fire gutted the One-Hour Valet shop at 26 Church Ave. SW, early today.”

As for the quilt, I will be looking into this. I cannot believe that thing was right under our nose and we haven’t seen it. I will hope to have pics in the next week or two.
