Travel Tuesday - Corky Rides the Train
This newspaper article in The Pittsburgh Press on May 7, 1943 is about the increase of children traveling since the war began (click on the newspaper image for a larger view). There is a picture of my father, Corky, with his bag in between trains (number 2). Corky and his parents, Art and Agnes Cubbage, were living in Akron, OH at the time. They were probably traveling to Pittsburgh to visit Agnes' mother, and/or to Monessen to visit both of their families. Art was a ticket agent with the Pennsylvania Railroad from 1939 until he was inducted into the US Navy in April 1944.
