The Best Elmira Guestbook!

Sadly, we are no longer accepting new photo requests. Facebook and other social networks have pretty much made this feature archaic. I'm happy and appreciative to have had people support this back in the early 2000s, providing photos that in turn provided smiles. Thank you.

I would like to request any photographs of "Parkview Tavern" that anyone might have. I am the grandson of Mike and Genny Daddona the owners of Parkview and have grown up their all my life. Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of my childhood I was at Parkview and at Eldridge Park. Too bad when your young you never think of taking pictures of these places. Why would you think that someday it would be gone? I miss the Restaurant and would like any image I could obtain. I would be more then happy to pay for them. I would be a nice surprise for my Grandmother. Thank you.
