I am 83 years old and I have lived in Lansford all that time. I was born in Lansford (Kline Avenue), delivered by a midwife. Boy, was my dad proud.
Living here all that time, I have seen Lansford go from a nice, prosperous town to a dump. People had jobs in mines and factories, and people were friendly.
My mom worked in the Kidde Clothes for 12 cents an hour, and my dad worked in the No. 10 Mines.
