Hi Marie , Is there anyway you could either post the pics or e-mail them.
My e-mail is [email protected]. Hey if anyone else wants to e mail I would love to hear from you.
I have just made contact with Geraldine Patterson from Alcar St on the board .
We moved to Toronto early 70's then California near San Francisco and we now live in Roswell New Mexico (the place where the UFO crashed in 1947 LOL)
going on 30 yrs
This is great making contact
                Wow, Rosewell. I love the history there. The So called UFO crash. Wonder how true it was. Supposed to be a weather baloon.  ??? ??? ???

Our summer went by all too fast Marie and at times was way too hot. We are approaching Fall now with the mornings darker and cooler. Delighted that you got to see into my wee world. Like you there is not a day goes by when I don,t think of the great people I enjoyed growing up especially Altcar Street where my family began. It was always fun to go down there and go from house to house. Take care love. :-*
