LaSalle PRIDE Inc. has issued its third edition of the LaSalle Legacy Calendar featuring 12 new historical photos of the former Village of LaSalle. The purchase price is $10 and proceeds will benefit the Historical Programs of LaSalle PRIDE.
LaSalle PRIDE is a nonprofit historical and civic organization that promotes the history of the former Village of LaSalle, which existed from 1897 to 1927 in the Town of Niagara. The village was officially annexed into the City of Niagara Falls on June 27, 1927.
Twelve old photos include Browns Tourist Cabins, Niagara School No. 4 (once the 1st Congregational Church and later the YMCA), an aerial view of Military Road and Pine Avenue (showing the Plantation, Milk Cup, Mil-Pine Plaza and the Starlight Theater), Griffon Manor, the LaSalle Children's Carnival, a 1939 view of the first Grand Island Bridge, 1940s Mang's hockey team, LaSalle Senior High, Milleville Dairy, a "cracker box" house and a 1914 view of Cayuga Creek.
New this year is the 1893 Hopkins Atlas map of the village.
The calendars are available for purchase at the LaSalle Library on Saturday mornings from 10 a.m. to noon. They can also be bought at Augie's Diner in the Pine Plaza; Every Day Gourmet Bakery and Café, 702 Cayuga Drive; and at the Sunshine Café, 8649 Buffalo Ave.
LaSalle PRIDE is also seeking anyone 86 years or older who was born in LaSalle or resided there for a special program planned for 2014.
If you or someone you know was born before 1927, contact Terry Lasher at 716-425-4005.
