  1. Our family moved to 2492 W Boston in 1956 I went to Roosevelt, Durfee and Central.
    I remember being in Mrs Cleage’s social studies class

    1. I hope you did not have that awful book “Some Day Soon” that I remember from a social studies class with my mother! I’m glad you remember her.

      1. As one of the few white kids in Roosevelt at the time, that experience brings back wonderful memories. It was unique neighborhood I grew up in,quite middle class. I lived on Boston Blvd for 14 years and wouldn’t trade of those memories for the world.
        Great reading, it brings nothing but smiles to my face
