Happy Birthday Old Time Erie

Old Time Erie photo of the Brig Niagara by Debbi Lyon.
It seems like yesterday when Old Time Erie was hatched. Hard to believe a year has passed. Where did the time go? I had no idea how much that so many people loved Erie history. Thanks for sending compliments and suggesting story ideas. A big thanks to all the people who have made this possible! If you've ever contributed a picture or a postcard, give yourself a pat on the back. If you've been meaning to say hello or send something in, here's your chance.

Here's to the next chapter in the people's history of Erie, PA!

  1. Thank you Debbi for founding the site and all the work you do for it. The information you post and the comments from readers keep the history of our city alive for us. For me, that works to give me an awareness that I didn't have before.

  2. Hi Debbi---

  3. Debbi: you are to be lauded for assembling the history, facts, places and details about the Gem City in such a readable format. I'm a former resident and am writing a novel that's set in Erie spanning the 30's through the current time and your site has been indispensable.
