Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

SNAPSHOTS BACK DOWN THE ROAD #5

SCHOOL DAYS
I wonder if Jr. High School, & High School boys still wear Letter Sweaters, & let their "Steady" girlfriend wear them. This is my Jr. High Football letter, I guess you can tell I didn't have a "Steady" girlfriend. It was 1949, & I was in the 9th grade.

Hi David,
That's 344 East College Ave. near north side. Looking up at the end of the alley behind me is Chestnut St. I just had a great flashback of walking up Mason St. on my way to Roosevelt Jr. High,(we walked to school back then),and was on the part of Mason between Cecil & Casilly, where it is just an alley.WOW! They tore Roosevelt down you know, & SHS is going down too, no respect for the past.

I used to collect these sweaters. Never gave them back. I just dated the guys to get the letter. Must have had 4 or 5 of them. I moved a lot back them.

W W L G H You know how bad my spelling is Gary. Could mean anything. I know there is a Washington, Webster, Hoover and Lincoln and Granite. I just remembered them. Can not remember the fellas names. But then again I forget the name of my X of 27 years most of the time.
