I am a bit older. I graduated from St Justin in 1955. My paper route was from 69th and Loomis to 63rd and Elizabeth. I snowed my way home through Ogden Park. I have a blog about growing up there: http://www.memoriesofatime.com

I am still here, writing my blog about growing up in Chicago. I have already written about Saint Justing Martyr. While at 6720 S. Marshfield, I was in Troop 661, and had a paper route (which I have written about) from 69th and Loomis to 63rd and Elizabeth. Read me: Jim O'Neil http://www.memoriesofatime.com

While growing up at 55th and Halsted, I went to Pappas' Ice cream shop on the corner. Somehow, some way, I was addicted to Green River. I had Jimmy Pappas make me a Green River malt(ed). Delicious. I was hooked. For four years in the Byrne's Building I had access to the greates malt ever!

Any comments? I had tonsils and appendix removed there while a sophomore in high school, 1956-1957. A nursing school was attached. Of course, I fell in love with one of my nurses.

I attended Quigley, 1955-1960. From 1955 to 1959 I lived in Visitation, working in the rectory and in the schools. I lived at 5509 s. Green and at 837 W. Garfield, next to the rectory--where "they paved paradise and put up a parking lot."

OMG: Just what I have been looking for. I was searching for a picture of Wieboldt's, my first job, in the grocery story. Had to get my Socail Security card for the job. I lived at 5509 South Green, in the Byrne's Building. I am writing about my jobs, but I have just posted a story about the Byrne's Building and Visitation.
