Andy's Angles: Beer Me
Luzerne County used to store its voting machines in this building along Water Street in Wilkes-Barre. Any time there was a re-canvass, we'd all schlep over here as workers opened up the backs of those big old lever machines, and looked at the numbers once again.
This used to be the Reichard & Weaver bottling house. A check of www.oldbreweries.com shows Reichard & Weaver were in business for only four years, back in the 1890's, but Reichard was involved in other breweries around here for a long time.
For a very old building, this one seems neglected, but in decent shape. There's a lot of history here, and I wonder if anyone appreciates its value.
