Life in the Old Neighborhood
Prior to WWII, neighborhoods were almost small cities unto themselves. There was the ice man, the milk man and the coal truck. The corner store, and the corner tavern were both down the side walk, and movies cost a dime; but there was also segregation by color and limited opportunities for African-Americans and women. After WWII, with societal pressures and technological advances, neighborhoods began to change. Join us on Wednesday when we talk with local historian Tom Owen about life in the old neighborhood. And call us with your memories and questions.
