Echoes of Sparrows Point -

I would like to see some stories done on the East Baltimore hood. Sure the place is now pure scum, but things are changing with the JHH Biotech and other happenings but most dont know the history of that area when the the large 3 story rowhomes were occupied by the cities wealthier residents. It would be interesting to read how a wealthy community is reduced to squalor and crime.

I lived in Dundalk for 7 years as a child. I attended the Grey Manor Elementary School. When I turned 10 years my parents moved our family to White Marsh. My dad worked his entire life at the steel mill. He retired at the age of 65.
My parents often spoke kindly of the closeness of the old neighborhood. The year we moved away was 1960. All I can remember is lots of row houses and the Sanbury Drug Store. Our mother would take us there and we wi=ould sit at the soda counter and drink a Coke out of a cone shaped cup. I remember my 5th grade teachers name was Mr. Mick. I would think he has retired from teaching by now.
