McIntyre Boy Scout First Aid Team

McIntyre received its first Boy Scout Charter in the mid-1920s. This photo from the early 1930s shows the McIntyre Boy Scout First-Aid Team. Each year they competed in the Mining First-Aid Competitions in Indiana, Pennsylvania. These teams had a practical application in towns such as McIntyre where mine accidents were always a possibility. Note the row of company-built houses on the hill and the ever present railroad cars on the right.
