Cromwell Crew Group Photos - 1974
Cromwell Crew Canoe Trip - August 1974


Lance (not
in picture cuz
he's taking it)

Notice how Bag is looking at Jacko, who is grinning. That's because just as Lance took the picture,
Jack punched him (timing his punch, in fact, with the click of the camera). Group shot was taken at
either Bushkill or Smithfield Beach (probably at Smithfield Beach - see the Summary Map Page).
Maybe Mick took this picture instead of Lance, as he's not in it, or else Mick just wandered away.

This photo is a Cromwell Crew classic, which later became a poster. To see the poster,
when it hung in Tier and Cut's apartment in early spring of 1975, click here, then scroll
down to the bottom of the page to the slide show. It's the second photo in the slide show.

Unknown when in 1974 this was taken at Dirty Jim's, aka the Knotty Pine, on Whippany Road,
possibly just a short while before T and Bummer left on their trip to Texas. Pictured tonight:
Howie, Nancy, Lynn Ryan (known as 'Mel'), Jacko, and Clete (Paul Denz), who is talking to his
girlfriend Peggy on the phone. Dave and Bag are behind Tier. Pablo remembers that beer used
to sell at $1.85 per six-pack with no tax. For a partial list of all the bars we went to, click here.

The date of Tier and Bummer's Texas farewell party at Schneider's was Sunday, Sept. 15, 1974.

The actual day they left was Monday, Sept. 16, 1974. After spending a year of college at Washington Univ. in St. Louis, Tier's original plan was to go solo "out West" and visit Feather at Villanova, Debbie Terzian (Bag's old girlfriend) at a girl's college also in Pennsylvania, Bag at Vanderbilt in Nashville, and Terry and Lance at Washington University in St. Louis. Once Bummer decided to go, they added Cut at Texas Tech in Lubbock. Read comments from Tier, Bummer, and Brother Dave.

See more from this day.

Tier and Bummer load up their possessions in Big Blue and move to Texas.
Harry, Howie, Clete, Mickey, Bummer, Tier, Rob, Jack and Dave were there.

See more from this party.
