The Normal theatre When we moved from Roseland to West Pullman. We lived on 119th St right down the street from the Normal. Spent my summers there. Roseland was the best place to grow up in. Moved from there in 1978. I was so sad. I wish I could find some of my old friends. Scanlon school was such a nice school the playground the tiny gym the assembly hall the pool.

Graduated Holy Rosary in 1975.
Lived next door to the former Greek Orthodox Church on South Park.
Remember Ken and Dicks pizza from across the alley building now gone.
Family goes back in the old neighborhood Two generations.
Dad worked for Stuart Roofing near the Kensington station.
Lived in Pullman during high school.
Know the area well.
Still glance at the area from the skyway going to work every day.

I know it will take forever to find the actual post, but i did a search for toots rago and this page came up. Im trying to get info on him. My fathers family (Kilheeney) grew up in roseland.

: Kriss, what I would suggest to you if you have access to Face Book, is to go to It is a group of about 1,178 members. I am sure that I have seen revues about Toots Rago on there. If not post a comment in that Remembering Old Roseland like you have posted on this guestbook. I'm sure you will get some information including a few photos.
Take care Kriss, hope this helps.

I remember spending Saturday shopping in downtown Roseland. Stu DeYoung hobby shop. Of course Gatleys and Green River old fashioned days. Watching baseball in Palmer Park. Seeing old doc. Novak. I remember the prettiest girl on the Southside living down the street from me Teri M. Being able to play outside all day and coming home when the street lights came on. The safety of walking around to and from friends houses.

Sad but true...I was working doing repairs at body shops around twenty years ago and I got a call to a shop on 119th St. just down the street from Scanlon school on Perry. I was excited about it because I lived blocks from there it was across from the old Jewel. I went in the shop and the owner asked if I was lost. I told him I used to live right down the street ...he said you don't live there now do you? And asked if I'd leave and send someone else...it was just so sad.
