Well, not quite !! The Easter Parade at the Oval and the prize winner for best dressed in his age group... my brother Jake !!! This must have been about 1966.
Sleigh riding at "The Rocks" in the North Quadrant. This was near the little north playground and behind 2090 E. Tremont, Tremont Ave is in the background. Not much of a hill, but it sure was fun !! Not sure where everyone went on the hill..... maybe the cops were coming !!! That's me on the right, my brother Jake on the left. I think around 1963 by our sizes !!

The "Rocks", in the North, behind 2090 E. Tremont. On the right is "Machine Gun Hill", so named because of the grooves that used to be cut in the pavement on the hill, it sounded ike a machine gun when you skated or skate boarded down !!

On the left is the Rec Center at the Little North playground. Above, if I'm not mistaken, is the rear of 1579 Metropolitan Ave, the Rec Center would be on the left in this photo.
