The Fraternal Order of Eagles, aerie #46 - Pearl & Tupper Sts. Buffalo

 

July 27, 1914

In the presence of a crowd of 4,000 made up of Eagles of Buffalo, Lockport, Jamestown, Rochester, Olean, Tonawanda, Niagara Falls, Dunkirk & Depew the cornerstone of the new Eagles home at Pearl & Tupper streets was laid yesterday afternoon. ( July 26, 1914) 

Mayor Fuhrmann wielded the trowel, and the principal speech of the afternoon was made by Past Grand Worthy President Frank E. Hering of South Bend Indiana. Ernest W. McIntyre spoke of the history of aerie #46. Other Eagles of high standing in the state spoke as well. The cornerstone laying was preceded by a parade that formed at the site of the new building and after marching down Delaware through the business section, returned to Tupper & Pearl Streets. There were more than 3,000 persons in the line of march, which was headed by the grand & state officers.

"The American Side" Made in Buffalo!

"The American Side" Made in Buffalo!

This is a classic film noir private detective story with participants fighting over plans of a Nikola Tesla invention that was separated by Tesla into two parts so it could not be built without having both halves. Scenes were shot at the Grain Elevators, many locations around Buffalo, on the Steam Engines at the Col. Ward, Niagara Falls and even the Lockport Locks and caves. They are working on releasing the film in the Spring. It's a fun, tense detective movie definitely worth seeing especially if your from WNY. This movie is a great boost for Buffalo...
