Apple Picking

In this 1938 photo, Dr. John Fague of Shippensburg is seen picking an apple on his paper route in Pittsburgh. When Fague was a boy, he delivered newspapers for the Pittsburgh Press and Pittsburgh Sun-Telegraph.


The year was 1938, and I delivered the Pittsburgh Press and Pittsburgh Sun-Telegraph. I had to make sure which house got which paper, or I would be in trouble.

I started out my newspaper career with a smaller late evening edition of both papers. I did such a good job that my boss gave me a bigger route, which included the Sunday edition.
