Taken in front of Womrath's, on Metropolitan Ave. This was taken about 1981 or so.   Many a cool Matchbox car I bought in this store in the late 50's and early 60's !!

Jim Fay ( St Helena Class of '68 ) sent me this next group of photos from a recent trip through Parkchester, mostly through the Purdy Street section.  Thanks Jim !
The Monkey Bars.  Jim relayed that the Purdy Street playground, at Purdy and Tremont, was closed and in disrepair, but all the old equipment was still his words, "like the Parkchester playground that time forgot" !
The sliding ponds.  These have to be antiques now !
On the left is what once was Kenny's bar on Tremont, now a laundromat and on the right is DMV where many of us, no doubt, stood in long lines for that all important first driver's license !
Jim Barone sent in these next  6 shots along with this note:    I grew up on and hung out on Mcgraw & Virginia Ave during the late 50's and wild 60's.  Went to St. Helena's from 54 -62, then St Helena's high from 62 -66. Most of the pics are showing us hanging out around Mcgraw / Virginia Aves.  The snow scene is Met Oval.
