I worked at Mossie's in the '80's. It started on Paige street then moved to Merrimack Street. The owner, was a great guy to the customers but not so much to the staff. I agree, not so old.

It was Shanahan's TV Store next to Tommy Gills and the beauty shop on the other side.

What a blast from the past this page has been.
Here are some of my favorite memories of Lowell.
Nap's variety store, great penny candy, right next to Michaels ice cream.
Sweetland Gardens, Poiriers Hobby shop. This was when I was real little. Moved to Marshall st, then Sacred Heart area, and eventually South Lowell.
We moved out of the projects on Market st, and right next to the Hells Angels when the lived at the corner of Branch and Middlesex, poor Mom couldn't get a break.Seeing the H.A.'s actually got me into motorcycles, even to this day.
Maries Oyster house having the best fried fish ever. Scary that I could see the Laconia, Sokol's, the White Eagle, and Laconia from my living room window.
Sad to see that Butler Jr. High is now vacant, I remember how Mr. Hopler took us all skiing up at Gunstock. Still skiing Hop, RIP
So many comments on this thread, that brought back memories, from "ding-ding" to South Lowell, it all seemed like yesterday.
Some of my favorite LHS teachers, the Borst brothers, Katherine Hammersley, George Bossi,
Played a lot of pick up basketball with kids on Lawrence st, Eugene Alexander, one of my favorite people of all time was unstoppable. And funnier than anyone I ever met. Saw him crawl through the window at ULowell to see a concert once,right before the band came onstage.
Anyone remember Dan's variety on Andrews st? Dan would spit every third word, and had a finger or two with the tip missing. Could pull a Coke out of an old cooler with water at the bottom.
Would play rubber ball with Father Gorham in the parking lot of Sacred Heart, nice sliding into second on the hot top.
My kids crack up when I tell them how so many kids had two names, Ray-Ray, Bam-Bam, Ki-Ki, Joe-Joe, and Cubby, but I knew two Cubbies, and two guys with the same unusual name and personalities, Frank Strykowski. No place like Lowell back in the day.
Anonymous-I see some names that I recognize from your post and would like to know if we have some common friends. Your references to two-named kids really caught my eye. Would I be correct with the last names of the following:(I am only going to use the first 2 or 3 letters to protect their privacy)Ray-Ray & Bam-Bam Ram***, Ki-Ki Ru**, Joe-Joe Lip***, and Cubby Gre*******. Don't know who the other Cubby might be. Also in a later post you mention a few things that are part of my past. Oliviera Park and 3am Billerica Forum. I grew up in the Prince Spaghettiville section (Flats) and played at the Oliviera (Chamber's) park as well (Go Oaks!!!). I also played many a game at The Forum in pick-up games as well as a referee. You mention the Sacred Heart area which SO many little league kids came from (John McA******, Mike Und*****) were a few a remember. My coach, Bob Paq*** was from around there too. Not sure if you want to reveal much about yourself as to give yourself away. Id be OK with that realizing not wanting to put yourself "out there" too much. But it was fun to read your post and see a few things that were very specific to me. Hope to see some kind of reply in the future. Thanks Anonymous!!!
