Found in the large format black photo album of NE Weaver 1934 - 1939, on page 9, images of the Ed Duncan family of near Dayton Ohio. On the grass is Jean, with ? girl, and "Babs" Barbara Duncan on the pony with Ed Duncan on the right. Estle Edward Duncan. by NE Weaver ca 1938.
Below, Bill and Maxine Butler, with Paul H Weaver near Red Wing MN. The Butler's were friends of Peg and Pete Weavers from Minneapolis. Peg's best Oberlin friend, Jane Randle Banks introduced them as she met them at a retail school in New York City, where they had all studied after college graduation. The Butlers, according to Peg Weaver in her memoir, p 37 "For the summer the Butlers had moved to a cottage in Deep Haven on Lake Minnetonka, where we drove to meet them. Being most hospitable, they served cognac, which we had never tasted before and could hardly swallow. Maxine and Bill's old car was named "Petunia". Through the cracks of the floor boards, I could see the pavement rolling by.
One evening we skated on the little lake in Loring Park near our Minneapolis apartment, becoming hysterical over our many spills. With Maxine and Bill we drove to Ladysmith, Wisconsin, to spend a weekend with Maxine's parents, when we saw our first storm-windowns. The Butler and Weavers became very good friends and for several years spent Thanksgivings together, alternating between Minneapolis and Faribault. The Butlers introduced us to Bernie Street an intern at a different Minneapolis hospital. After Pete was practicing in Faribault, he ran into Bernie at a Rice County Medical Society meeting when Bernie was practicing in Northfield, fifteen miles away."

1935- 1938 Noah Elwood Weaver - Ohio State University with son Paul Henry - Tom Roehm Family Dayton Area.
Here in a Noah Elwood Weaver album, 10 x 13 format, I discovered on Page 5 from 1935-38 four images of OSU, Ohio State University as labeled by Edna Weaver. The first photo above is Tom (Roehm) in a suit, Tommy ? likely his son, with ? woman in a hat with my parents Peg and Paul H "Pete" Weaver, 2, Tom Roehm, Edna Weaver, boy, blonde hair, Tommy Roehm? my parents Paul H "Pete" Weaver with his likely new wife, Peg Glessner Weaver somewhere on the OSU Campus.
3. Business on High Street, 1084 or 2084 High Street, where a Karvasalas (sp) had a candy store. Looks like Tommy and Tom Roehm in front of the building. 4 - Paul H and Peg Glessner Weaver, Edna and Noah Elwood Weaver somewhere on the OSU Campus. My parents were married in the fall of 1935, so I sense this was 1836-38. PHW graduated from OSU in June 1938, and moved to Minnesota that summer.

Upon World War I's conclusion, the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company continued to manufacture zeppelins. The firm used most of these ships to advertise its products. By the late 1920s and the early 1930s, among the firm's completed zeppelins were the Pony, Pilgrim, Puritan, Volunteer,Mayflower, Vigilant, Defender, Reliance, Resolute, Enterprise, Ranger, and Columbia. Most of these ships utilized helium to become airborne, while zeppelins originally used heated air or hydrogen. During this period, other companies, especially European ones, were constructing airships to transport passengers, including across the Atlantic Ocean. Goodyear also manufactured two airships, the Akron and the Macon, for the United States military during the early 1930s. During World War II, the company manufactured 104 airships for the military at its Akron facility." http://ohiohistorycentral.org/w/Goodyear_Zeppelin_Company?rec=899

Here is the full page article in the Spring 2006 issue from the Cox Arboretum, on Page 5.
P 2 Black Album, field with Eicher Farm and Apple orchard behind, Ca 1914
The Eicher farm in Sect 15 Miami Twp, has the small road about 2/3 mile from West Carrollton. The x at 1 mile point is the Henry Eicher 2 acre corner, Bellbrook Road and Springboro Pike that is featured elsewhere on the blog. The Lamb School just off of Holes Creek, may be the Alexanderville School where Edna Eicher is pictured as a teacher. Less than a mile walk! :-)
