May of 1933

In May of 1933, the wife of Pennsylvania's Governor, Mrs. Gifford Pinchot, came to Allentown to lend support to striking textile workers. At that time,  Allentown housed close to 100 garment factories. In 2013, the sewing factories are all gone, and Mrs. Pawlowski wants to be the governor's wife.

My! My! how the times change. One Governor's wife supports the residents & workers of Allentown. While another uses and abuses our fair City to it's detriment as a stepping stone for political advancement.....PJF
