We were able to borrow a photo album that belonged to Heidi Percorelli. She had been a member of the blasting crew when the Terracing of the hillside above Route 7 between Wellsville and East Liverpool was done in 1996-97. While working in that capacity she took a couple hundred pictures of the ongoing project. We scanned about 120 of those pictures and we will post many of those here.
Some blasting going on.
Having never done this I am guessing here but I think holes are drilled. Dynamite or whatever is used is inserted in the hole, wires to detonate and electrically explode.
I do have to apologize. I do not have the names of the various workers other than Heidi. I will see if I can get the other names.
We don't know what the ruins in that bottom pictures are from. It would be interesting to know probably.

Hyperlinking, or as it is also called framing, without permission is not permitted.
Legally speaking framing is still in a murky area of the law though there have been court cases in which framing has been seen as violation of copyright law. Many cases that were taken to court ended up settling out-of-court with the one doing the framing agreeing to cease framing and to just use a regular link to the other site.
The East Liverpool Historical Society pays fees to keep their site online. A person framing the Society site is effectively presenting the entire East Liverpool Historical Society web site as his own site and doing it at no cost to himself, i.e. stealing the site.
The East Liverpool Historical Society reserves the right to charge such an individual a fee for the use of the Society’s material.
