Cardiff 1940

Mystery solved! See story here!

The Library of Congress archive describes this as "The village of Cardiff, Pennsylvania. In the foreground are the remains of an abandoned mine workings, dead for 10 years. Near Force, Pennsylvania." Jack Delano, photographer. Created/published September 1940. Though "Force" is identified as a Pennsylvania place (zip code 15841, between State College and Oil City near I-80), the Library also describes Cardiff as a Cambria County village. This photo was found in the archive by the webmaster by entering all other Blacklick Valley towns in the Library's search engine. See update linked above.
