A Historical Picture Explained…

Taken on the front steps of the Armory in the 1940s

Before Sunday’s event all we knew of this picture was that it was taken at the Tonawanda Armory years and years and years ago.  But thanks to Charles Lucsok of the Tonawanda area we now have an explanation.  The picture was taken in the 1940s, probably around 1944. The National Guard had been called in to help clear snow after a mammoth snowstorm had buried the area under a few feet of snow.  This picture was taken right after the Guardsmen had finished clearing snow off the railroad tracks. Lucsok is the third Guardsman standing from the right.
