Dedicated in September 1961, the terminal building at Reading Municipal Airport – also known as General Carl. A. Spaatz Field, in honor of Berks County’s famed air commander – is one of the finest in the land for a community this size. Airline offices, dining room, cocktail lounge, ticket booths are among the terminal’s many features. Shown standing at the field gate are, left to right: Mrs. Ralph G. Hill, Miss Sidney McIlvain Kutz and Mrs. Frederick J. Williams.

Born and raised in Berks, I am fascinated by the style, design & culture of the mid-late 20th century. I started this website to research and build a collection of the places, things and stories I have heard about my entire life. Read more here.
