What’s Going On Across the River in Millvale, PA?

Didn’t have to dig too deep for this series of shots.
A  town about ten minutes away.
As with collections, decorators say to group
like items together.
Of course, as I look at the finished post I am
thinking of a return trip to capture the dinette store,
the modernize your home sign,
and the storefront  with items for pet birds.

Seven images of Millvale, PA from the files.  Millvale is happening! I love the Beatles painted on the mural by Attic Records and the laundromat.

Millvale,PA home to my wonderful framer Mark Panza at Panza Gallery and the delicious French bakery of Jean-Marc Chatellier.  The beautiful St. Nicholas Croatian Church with the Maxo Vanko Murals and Holy Spirit Parish up on a high hill where Marlene’s Aunt Kitty and Uncle Shrimp married years ago.(J & J more recently, too)

Steve and I go to Grant Bar  on Grant Avenue for a fish sandwich and sometimes I order tapioca for dessert. You can order a full dinner special for 9.95!   Millvale has had a few floods.  Check out the high water mark.

Two previous blog posts you might remember- If you want to see Panza Gallery and the great linoleum floor, click here

And to see the post of Jean-Marc at work frosting a cake click here.

I think I should be on the Chamber of Commerce for downtown Millvale.

There are delicious pancakes at Pamela’s diner next door to the Lanes.  The Time to Eat clock is theirs. The hobby shop is where I bought some H&O miniatures illustrating laundry day.

    I’m going to go to Millvale and wander around! The tapioca pudding sounds inviting. Is the Millvale Pamela’s the same Pamela as Shadyside and Squirrel Hill…who got invited to the White House?

    Millvale is a great little town with huge ideas and big plans for the future. It’s also a town with common people who always come together to help and assist one another.

      The Double L has an old fashioned feel and is clean and well kept (a clean restroom in this tavern is always found). This bar has charity events yearly to benefit those in need…Great small town hospitality. Service is always with a smile… drinks reasonable, food good.

    Hey, don’t go by Millvale without visiting some of the other staples in the town for good food and drinks… Yetter’s Homemade Candy, Frank’s Pizza and Hoagies, Sidelines famous Wings, Grant Bar Shrimp, French Bakery Macarons… all worth taking home for later. Enjoy a concert at Mr. Smalls Theater for a night out.
