A few personal pics of the old neighborhood.
There are a lot of places I want to put here. Pics of Newts, the old Hetzels with the pavillion, Holy Name School. I'll get them all. But these will have to do for the time being.

The 1400 block of Emerick St...where I was raised. As a kid, I thought it was wayyyy larger than it is. But I guess that's the way those things go. The house isn't there anymore. It blew up on Election Night of 1976. Oddly enough, the family was at a wake around the corner.

East Baptist Church. Right down the street from Hetzel's Playground.

The First Presbyterian Church on Girard Ave. As a kid, I thought it was the US Capitol! Kinda looks like it to a kid, huh? But, then again, I thought the Pilgrim church at Belgrade and Marlboro Sts was the Alamo. Walt Disney on the brain, I guess.
