    I enjoyed Matt’s recounting of the day the Japanese sub came to Kane. On that day I was 10 years old, a student at Central School and lived with my family on Spruce St. I spent about an hour standing beside the sub as part of the crowd while it was parked on Field Street as part of the tour to help sell War Bonds to finance the war. I’m most likely in the picture taken by Mr. Henretta; I stood in the area near the sub that’s depicted in the photo.

    After the war ended I also viewed the huge Homecoming Parade that welcomed the Kane areas troops home from overseas. I had a terrific vantage point from a second-story window of one of the Fraley Street stores, Broadbent’s Department store.

    I have lived in New Jersey for the past 57 years but will always consider Kane as my “home town”.

      Thank you so much for sharing your memories, Barron! If you have any pictures of your own from those times, please feel free to post them.

      Your hometown will always be here for you to return to, whether to move back or for a visit! 🙂

    My father, grew up in Kane and graduated from Kane HS in 1938. In 1940 he worked for Butler Brothers, located on Elk Street in Kane. He served in China in the 14th Air Force. I am looking for information about the Butler Brothers in support of a book I am writing about my father. Can you help. P.S. Curt Hartman is my cousin and knows quite a lot about the book I am writing. Thanks.
