In Search Of....

I'm sure there are some old friends out there that you would love to track down. I'm trying to find Steven Lewis but so far no luck. Other people have mentioned Jerry Bader who lived on Brooklyn Ave and Monica Solomon. Anybody have any info on these folks? Is there anyone you are looking for?

Who was Harry Silver?

Eddie Franklin posed the question and I don't have a good answer for him. Does anyone know more about him? Was he the Donald Trump of his day?

Eddie also threw out the following word associations that bring back the old days for him: Mario, Cliff, B46, Wetson's, White Castle, Lee-Arn Diner, Floridian, Amitybagel, Big Daddy's, Tastee Freeze, milk machine, 1965 blackout, 1966transit strike, 1969 teachers strike, skelly, ringolivio, pinochle,mahjong, Dr. Lessner.

I would add to that Cheap Charlie's, Little Venice and "the Pit". What word's bring you back to those good old days?

Photos of People?

I have created a new album for photos of people and the original album will be for places. This new set includes some Bar Mitzvah photos and I know that there are many more out there. If you have old photos just scan them in and email them to me I will be glad to post them.

New Photos

It seems like a lot of us when we get the chance take a ride by the old neighborhood. I've posted some new photos which Bonnie Bergstein (Ratner) sent along. If anyone else has some photos they would like to share just send them along.

Back in Action

Okay, I really don't have any good excuse why this has dragged on so long but I'm back in action. This weekend I sent out about 200 postcards the old fashioned way. These are addresses I accumulated from a bunch of places, the old reunion list, emails from people and Internet searches. I'm hoping this will reach some of the folks I haven't been able to find up till now. Within a few weeks I should know what sort of response it has generated and then I'll send out an email to the updated list and see if we can make this happen.
