When I invited viewers to contribute images for this site, I was very fortunate that Cathy VerSchneider, who grew up in Alder Creek, NY, volunteered to send me scans of some postcards and snapshots that showed scenes in Boonville and Alder Creek, NY.  Cathy's parents ran an Ice Cream Parlor in the Times Block of Boonville back in the 40's  and then in the mid-50's, established VerSchneider's Drive-In Restaurant at the junction of Routes 12 & 28 in Alder Creek.  These scans of Old Postcards and snapshots comprise:
