Central School @ Lindley- Was Located near Wetlands-Lindley Rd.
(Was Last seen before -1972 Flood )
I really appreciate it when someone sends new information about Lindley history.
I received the following note from Durland Weale with additional information to the Lindley History
"Lindley- Looking Back -200 years- 1900 " about Lindley school bus transportation .
"First pupil transportation to high school from Lindley was Fall of 1930. Ruth Weale bought a 1930 4 door Sedan to transport Lawrence Toby ,Dexter Eastwood(?), Evelyn, Eleanor,Margaret Toby and Marion Weale to Northside High School Daily .
Fall of 1931, William Ayres bought a Chevrolet dual wheel bus with seats arranged lengthwise of the yellow vehicle.
Fall of 1936, William Ayres purchased a Reo larger bus -green and white for daily trips to Painted Post and Northside High School . Mrs. Ayres assisted."
The Lindley history states Harlo Harris started the present Harris School bus business in 1939. Many of us have fond memories of riding with Harlo on his "Blue" bus to Painted Post and Northside High Schools. And if we were good -in the summer-- we 'got' to stop at Dann's Dairy for a 15 cent double dip ice cream cone on Wednesdays..
Those were the Good Old Days
Thanks Durland for sharing the information and bringing back memories of riding Harlo's bus.
In case you haven't discovered them ,there are several photos of the old Lindley Schools and students on display in the Lindley Town Hall.

From an Old Postcard
Some Irish Wishes
When life runs along like a song
And here's to the lad who can smile
When everything goes dead wrong.
As You slide down the bannister of life
May the splinters never point the wrong way.
Never iron a 4 leaf clover
because you don't want to press your luck!!
May you live as long as You want and
Never want as long as you live.
There are 2 kinds of people in this world, the Irish and
those who wish they were..
Top O' the Mornin to You and Happy St. Patrick's Day

.It is with sadness that we report the passing of Bick )
We will miss his cheerful, friendly manner and his passion for his antique cars.

From August 13, 1920 Elmira Advertiser
All kinds of automobile reports are current. The latest is that the Maxwell and Chalmers Motor Companies have been absorbed by the interests of John N. Willys and that other companies are to be absorbed maybe, financially placing the automobile business in about three hands, the syndicate represented by Willys, General Motors and Ford.
( Do I remember reading something about General Motors moving their headquarters to China recently?? )
Time Marches On---
