(1938) 9th Annual Kiwanis Minstrels "The Good Ship Spin-a-four. -- Haha, I see my dad in there. His name was Patrick Kearins but usually the newspaper listed him as Patty Kearins when they advertised where he was performing. He was a well known singer in Shamokin way back then and he also performed with his friends, the Dorsey Bros., before they left the region for the Big Time. His parents owned the old Market Street Hotel started by his grandfather who was one of Shamokin's pioneer residents. My favorite ad was the one where the establishment served that wonderful welsh delicacy called the "faggot" and the ad read "Patty Kearins and the Original Faggots". Bwahahaha!!!! Anyway, he is the 2nd guy in sailor uniform sitting to the right of the lady standing.
