Lawrence Deklinski- Dalado Photography

Hello everyone, my name is Larry Deklinski. A little history, on this stie you will see a master album called "Thomas Studio." In April 2016, I bought the "safety film" and prints that were taken by the defunct Thomas Studio in Shamokin. Along with this came the negatives from the defunct Shamokin Citizen, a weekly newspaper from 1950 until about 1967.

Since April 2016, I have made it a goal to scan, edit, upload and caption 400 negatives a month. I have met this goal every year, which means, as of Dec. 2020, there are at least 22,000 old photos on this site. So, let's look at some history together!!

Please email me at with any questions.

I would like to thank you for your comments and continued support. Contact me at
