Time Travel: Bridgeport High's 2008 Girls Swim Team Champs and the 1912 Johnstown Community Band

By Dick Duez on September 06, 2020 from History Blog via Connect-Bridgeport.com

Bridgeport High School's swimming program has a long and rich history of winning under the guidance of Jan Grisso. Shown above is the 2008 state swim champs. The team finished the year with a 13-0 record.
Entertainers didn't always travel by plane, bus, train or limosuines. As this 1912 photo shows, a horse drawn carriage did the trick for the local Johnstown Community Band.
Editor's Note: This ongoing photo feature of pictures from Bridgeport and throughout the Mountain State is part of local historian Richard "Dick" Duez's collection. Duez, the unofficial historian of Bridgeport, would appreciate any scanned photos emailed to him for use here or to include in his ongoing efforts to preserve local history. You can email photos, or let him know how to acquire copies of photos you may have in your possession, to Duez at dick.do@citynet.net.
