Bar on Bridge Street, Etna, PA -- circa 1938 and 1942
(images contributed by Richard (Dick) Wissolik, April, 2013)
Fred Wissolik behind the bar at his saloon at
34-36 Bridge Street, Etna between 1938 and 1942. The bar was
owned by Matt Segina, of 137 Butler Street, and Fred and
Barbara Wissolik. They sold it to Perkovic ca. 1943-1944. It
is today's "Porky's." When the shifts changed at Spang's
across the street, men stood at the bar lined up three deep
ordering "boiler makers."
A real estate notice for the bar. The sign over the front
door is illegible, but the bottom word seems to be beer. The
sign in the right window reads "Fred Wissolik, Lunch, (rest
illegible). The bar property also included a duplex facing
Garden Alley. The Milcic family lived in one until they moved
to Lehr Avenue, Etna.
