Meadow Hollow Hill Climb riders identified


Carl Williamson of Mill Hall recognizes several people in this photograph, which appeared in the “Old Photo Album” on Nov. 15. At far left is C. Gibby Wise, a Harley Davidson dealer, shaking the hand of Howard Mitzel of York County, a championship driver who continued his career into his 60s. The next two men are professional riders, and at far right is Red Mosser of Altoona, a referee for western Pennsylvania motorcycle events. The riders participated in an event at the Meadow Hollow hill climb site near Brewery Hollow on Farrandsville Road, probably in 1947 or 1948, Mr. Williamson tells us. An anonymous caller also said Mr. Wise’s dealership was at 114 Woodward Ave., Dunnstown. We thank both readers for this information.
