This week, The North Tonawanda History Museum will produce its latest window pane covering design, part of its Window Pane Covering Project.
The Oliver Street Heritage Exhibit Hall pane, sponsored by Violet Domagala Kolecki in memory of John H. Kolecki, and their daughter, Marcia, features photos connected with historic Oliver St. All 26 panes have now been sponsored for the history museum at 54 Webster St.
The purposes of the panes are to protect museum pieces from UV rays coming through the windows of the building and provide displays to passersby of what's inside.
The Oliver St images are: Central Bank building (now the Fish Place) G. V. Goerss Dairy items, Oliver Shoe Shine, Matthew Piorkowski (of Matt's Music) with Lawrence Welk (ca 1950s( ice cream carton from Vic & Kai's (Witkowski) Delicatessen, Pickard's Furniture Store in 1930, Ironton School, The children of the founder of McCarthy's Market, and Felice Cordapadre, who changed his name to William McCarthy, and McCarthy's Market (75 years on Oliver Street) and sign for Joseph Prelewicz (insurance and real estate business on Oliver Street.
The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ hit the New York Times bestseller list the week of the 50th Anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Political insider Roger Stone makes a case that Lyndon B. Johnson orchestrated the murder of JFK arguing LBJ blackmailed his way on the ticket in 1960 and was being dumped in 1964 to face prosecution for corruption by US Attorney Robert Kennedy. Stone uses fingerprint evidence and testimony to argue JFK was shot by an LBJ hit man, not Lee Harvey Oswald.
