Old Batavia Photo: Batavia Archers
Tony Mancuso shared with us another picture of old Batavia from his family archive. This shot is of a group known as the Batavia Archers. He doesn't know the year nor can he identify most of the people in the photo. He'd love to hear from anybody who can. His father, Joe Mancuso, is second from the left. The young lad looking like Robin Hood, near the center of the photo with the feather in his cap, is Jim DiSalvo, currently owner of Applied Business Systems and of the home on Fargo Road known for its annual Christmas lights display.
Unless things have changed much, you can probably catch one of the DiSalvo brothers (Sam, Ron or Jimmy) at the Pok-A-Dot. One of them should pretty much be able to "date" the pic.
Flannel lined pants on the extreme left hand person reminds me of the pants I use to wear in the early 50s. Very warm on a cold Winter's day!
Flannel lined pants-blue jeans are available through LL Bean or the Sportsman's Guide to name a few, and they might be available locally.
Cabela's sells them too.
