Moon landing clippings, Part 5

It's an Apollo 11 anniversary extravaganza! Here's a bundle of headlines, short stories and excerpts from the July 21, 1969, edition of The Pittsburgh Press. This was the day after the moon landing.

Gimbels was in business from 1887 to 1987

WATCHING THE MOONWALK INTO THE WEEK HOURS, the Carl Mock family of 3251 Pinehurst Ave., Dormont, typified area families who stayed up long past their bedtimes last night to watch Astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin takes man's first steps on the moon. All eyes but two were glued on the TV set as Paul, 4, found sister Nancy, 18, a perfect pillow and fell asleep. Wide awake throughout the epic walk, however, were Wayne, 8, on floor, and, left to right, Mr. and Mrs. Mock, Greg, 13, and Don, 16. Paul was joined in dreamland by Elaine, 6, already in bed. The 2 hour and 11 minute walk ended at 1:10 a.m.
