Carville Leather, where abouts would that be? I see on Google Earth and
in the background of one of a shots Gino sent of the West Montgomery
railroad crossing there is what appears to be a nice brick mill in the
block just north west of the crossing. Wasn't served by rail but any
idea what it was? I'm tempted to draw what I can of it as the roof line
sticks up above the trees.

- View SourceAndy,Carville leather is the old Knox Gelatine Plant off of Chestnut St which runs south/west to State Rt 30 A very near to the Industrial Park or if going east becomes Madison Ave .There is a large brick building to the northwest of that on W. Montgomery St that used to be the Johnstown Knitting Mill . I believe that closed in the early to mid 1990's .I have not gone by there recently to know if something else has gone in there it was for sale .Phil Danylak
