This is How It Was by William J Laubenstein, published by Dillon/Liederback Inc of Cleveland OH 1971, and interestingly enough there is a business card from DD Dillon the publisher used as a bookmark in here, so maybe it was a gift copy (but no inscriptions found). Illustrated by Sylvia Gilman. Story of the early 20th century in Minersville Pennsylvania where the author was a writer, world war 1 chemical warfare service, and other things. I am just guessing there is some coal mining among the stories since that is the main industry of the region at the time, but it is more a 'slice of life' work on early 20th century PA. 9x6 inches, good to very good condition, 131 pages.
