  • Fred Before my time but remember allot of the old buildings – we used to think the house next to where I lived had the hidden walls walk-walks as kids we loved to roam around in them fire-place and all…Was abandoned in disrepair then but fixed up nicely now from the pictures I saw. Thanks :-) Dave & Kim:-) (EVERY PICTURE TELLS A STORY)…

  • I remember it well, but not until the early 1950′s when I was a child staying on Mt. Vernon Street at my grandmother’s house. I loved hearing the bells as they played a familiar melody.
