I know I made a post asking about Tilden, but I was also wondering about Baldwin. I used to live there, too, when I was little, and I was wondering if anyone could share with me how much it has changed over the years.

When I lived there, I can't remember the exact area, but I remember there was a couple of blocks where we lived in about 3 different places. We used to live in this HUGE white house, it had a basement, 1st, 2nd, and attic floors, a garage, and it even had an outhouse in the yard that my brother and I had turned into our club house... The walls and windows of the house were so tall, and I was in love with that house...

And I remember we moved into this much smaller blue house after that with a long driveway, and all we had to do was go out our back door and cut across the alley to take the boxes over...

And even before that, we lived only a block over in a trailer... The landlord who owned that place lived across from us and they had one of those big round metal pools. Our babysitter was down the road from us, too, and the last house on the street had a blacktop with a nice old woman who lived there... I'm going to take a guess and say she lived at the corner of Pine and 1st? I'm not totally sure...

And then every morning on the way to school in Red Bud, we would pass by this house that had a fence with a picture carved out of Bart Simpson hopping the fence...
