A favorite photo of mine taken by my grandpa Briggs: “We were all down on the bridge.”

I thought my Halfway Brook readers might enjoy the larger images even though a few of these photos have been posted before:

I have rescanned them larger and/or with some tone.

    Barryville was the only movie theatre when I was 14, living near Eldred.

    I remember walking the 7 or 8 miles that night after meeting ‘my honey’ at the show and missing a ride home by the few cars passing.

    There were no lights of course and I had to pass that house known as “witches place” by running past, fast.
