Company store and gob pile at Republic, PA, a large coal and coke town in the Klondike Field built in 1905 by and named for Republic Iron and Steel Co. Republic was different in that there were, and are still, independent businesses there not associated with the coal company.

Many years ago someone though to take this snapshot of the tipple and associated buildings at Republic.

These days, however, all that remains of the coal and coke operations at Republic are these coke oven ruins, the slate dump, and memories.

Those who attended this school in Republic (if any are still alive) will be saddened to see it's condition. But at least it is extant.
