This interview is a bit hard to hear. So I’ve included the transcript. Just use the icons at the bottom of the pdf to go to the next page or to zoom in.EPS-109-Mary-McLhinney-transcript-1
Charles and Mary McLhinney have a long and storied history in Havre de Grace. Most remember them as the owners of the McLhinney Newsroom/Depot. I’m sure we still have residents that can recall earning a bit of money from their first job as ‘paperboys’ back in the day. (I might add that in later years they had ‘papergirls’ too!)
You may enjoy this information about the ‘SpeakEasy’ building that later became part of the McLhinney News Depot. CLICK HERE
It’s thanks to Mary and Annie that our ‘casual historian’ has been able to add so much to his Havre de Grace History MuZeum. From papers and photos to slides and films, you’ll see their gifts mentioned throughout our blog posts.
Plan to check in for another story on our Interview Wednesdays!
