My mother was born and raised in Bradford. She later married my Dad and spent the rest of her life in Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania. She passed in 2013. This weekend I was going through some old pictures and found one of this beautiful mansion. On the back my mother wrote: "This is the house where a gang of us kids went Halloween night trick or treating in the 1930's. Mrs. Dressler invited us in and then called the police. When they came they told us to go to other places and enjoy our night." My mother was a Sheehan and her father was a custodian in the Bradford schools in the 1930's and 1940's.
Does any one know what the Joseph E. Walborn house looked like? On Jackson Ave?
"The French Ballroom occupies the main part of the third floor. The wainscoting of the entire room is formed of mirrors by framework and panels in old ivory finish. The ceilings and walls above the mirrors are frescoed in one delicate blue cloud, with faint suggestions of cherubs and garlands of roses, producing an almost atmospheric effect. The three windows in the end of the room are draped in turquoise velvet and the drop curtain is also of the same blue velvet. French gilt chairs complete the furnishings of this room".
