« Where To Get LaPorte, Indiana! | Main | »


What a terrific concept for a book. So much of the history of small-town America has gotten lost; the small town itself seems to have gone.

I remember my own family being professionally photographed; people did that in the 50's and 60's. It didn't cost that much and you could send a nice picture of your kids out to all the folks you didn't get to see much. Oral/pictorial/"found" history is the real history -- kudos to Jason Bitner for pulling this together.

I am the 7-year old girl with the tight braided pigtails. The dress was pink with an overlay of matching pink lace. I have 2 photos in the book and a 1/4 photo shot in the front of the book.

I am the unknown girl in her communion picture, sitting and looking at my book and rosary. Daughter of Alice Szymula and Andrew Vlock. I left LaPorte after 7th grade and now reside in Colorado.
