Shared from Paul Monks. These photos from The Delaware Gazette looks back to the polio vaccine called Sabin Oral Sunday (S.O.S.) which came in three oral doses, Type I, Type II and Type III which began September 30, 1962.

I wish it was still this way.

Nancy Myers Davenport Could that be Margy in this picture on the left?

All the scents are there. Stores had a distinctive "smell".

I miss those days!!

The Nectar was always a favorite as a kid riding our bikes downtown to the Strand matinee. People Store, Duncan Jewelry and US Store.

So many memories.

I can smell the News Shop now, like bubblegum and pipe tobacco.

This is the downtown I remember

Miss all of it!

Love this! Many good memories!

It's sad that these stores don't exist anymore!

Throwback Thursday takes us to the village of Galena where the Dustin House in the Galena square. William Carpenter platted the village in 1816 and named it Zoar, apparently identifying it with the ancient city of refuge referenced in the Biblical book of Genesis. Nathan Dustin was an early settler and sawmill operator in the village of Zoar. This was Galena’s original village name until 1834, when the village was forced to change their name to avoid confusion with a town of the same name in Tuscarawas County, Ohio. Galena was a submission by Dustin himself as a possible village name which was pulled out of a hat draw. The inn was also the birthplace of the late Mrs. Frank B. Willis (Allie Dustin). The brick house contains 16 rooms with a fireplace in every room. Pictured below is a photo from the June 1958 Delaware Gazette of the Dustin House. The inn was dedicated to Mr. Nathan Dustin via plaque on May 15, 1966 by the Delaware County Historical Society. (Source: The Delaware Gazette/Delaware County Historical Society/Galenaohio.gov) ...
