January, 1940 photo of a little boy in Freedom, Pennsylvania.

  1. I showed this photo without text to my russian and ukrainian friends, everybody said it looks like post-soviet country in 2000s. Uncanny.

  2. What made it look like that? Post soviet countries usually had run down houses and overall poor looking towns. I don’t see that in this picture.

  3. This was an excellent read. I grew up in Beaver County (mostly Midland, Monaca, Beaver) and never heard of a lot of stuff in this article.
