1958 Comfort Coal Fire; Weingartens Liquors


My grandfather Morris (Moe) Weingarten, and later my father Ken Weingarten, ran Weingarten's Liquors at 108-110 Anderson St.  My dad (who was 27 yr old at the time) shot a color home movie of the spectacular Comfort Coal Co. fire in 1958.  Anyone remember my dad or grandfather?  My grandfather was an Elks Club member and honorary county sherriff.

Across the street my great-aunt and great-uncle Stella and Hymie Weingarten ran a tailor shop and knitting shop.  They had a son named Gilbert Weingarten.  He's living in NY now.
