By the way, Mexico Way. I can still taste the tacos I ate as I rode my bike home past the M.W K. after smooching my blushing bride. Try juggeling 3 tacos while riding a bike with hot sauce running down your elbow. OMG were they good!

Well life marches on but memories r cherished of the E-coast! How many remember how the city workers decorated the River Park with a huge tree? I know we've shared Halloween trick or treating stories or 4th of July, but Now we need some Christmas ones! I can hardly believe it was safe to go Christmas Caroling on 8th Street & some neighbors gave us hot chocolate or dimes & quarters (and Alley Store before that Scholtz's I believe- you could get a Hostess cupcake for a nickel)! I went down last week & cried & my old beautiful white house that was all boarded up! But back to fond Christmas memories! Anyone have any?

Howzabout the Christmas show every year at the Ford Rotunda, before it burned down? Any body old enough to remember that? Sledding down the viaduct hills on Outer Drive? Tobbogan runs at some park in Dearborn, I believe. Can't remember where they were exactly, but they were solid ice and fast as hell. E.J. Korvett parking lot didn't have any curb stops, it was wide open. We would burn a whole tank of gas sliding and spinning and skidding around on the ice and snow after the store closed. Merry Christmas to all.

Cars don't have real "bumpers" any more, and besides, if a cop saw you doing that, it would probably be considered a felony. You'd be arested, cuffed & stuffed and your family would pay a fortune to lawyers, court costs and fines. Like I said, yesterdays mischief is todays felony. Believe me, I am the crown prince of mischief. Read me. LOL. I don't think anyone could possibly have had as much fun as us morons back in the day.

Hi Gurl, Yea, the little one block stub of a street east of Outer Drive is still called Bonzano. Number 26 is still there and that's where I grew up. It was home from 1945 to 1961 when my dad had a house built on 11th and Cicotte and we moved. My blushing bride of 45 years and I went for a visit in the fall and were amazed at all the changes. The whole block of the Presby. church, rectory, and the Ducket center, the Harbor Theatrer and all that was just rubble. We drove all around the 'cose and the Rooge and just relived great old times. My brother in law still lives in their home on Fifth St. so we return from time to time. Bitter-sweet, happy-sad. bless you.

Speaking of the old times on the coast...Jefferson etc..my brothers do remember the boat houses..shacks where a few from the 20s & 30s had row boats. They also can remember fishing & Dad telling them where the sunken boats were full of whiskey from Canada. Had to sink them quick if the police were approaching! I know someone in his family was supposed to be a hit man for the Purple Gang but mother git rid of a lot of "evidence" when father passed away..
Boy did we push the envelope of safety? Cutting through trains to get to the ice rink off Beach St, sledding down the viaduct to Outer Drive- Heck my sister was "allowed" to walk the tracks in the 50s to meet cousins in Wyandotte to go to the show! Now I would like to put a GPS chip on my granddaughter for her to walk home 1 block from the Middle School!
Will scan Baseball pictures..cannot see any link to this site but could put them on the EHS one? Have lots..CC was an avid photographer!

You have to be OLD to remember that. Yes, there was a small radar base there until about 1952 and I immagine it was to protect the steel mill from attack during WWII. It was right across the tracks at the end of Bonzano St. behind the Presbyterian Church, before the Duckett Center was there.(Now the whole block is gone. Our house was one away from the tracks. My pal Les and I used to wrap rocks in tin foil and shoot them at the antennas with our slingshots, could have started a war. LOL The gate to the base was off Westfield.
