I live at 123rd and morgan st. Went to Mendel C.H.S class of 67. Enlisted in U.S.A.F in 68. Used to hang out at Deyoungs hobby shop everyday on the way home from school. My Dad worked at Gatley's. Are there any musicians? Remember Zordan music store? I think it was around 114th and Michigan. I used to play ball with my Dad at West Pullman park. My friends and I used to ride our bikes down Halsted st. past St. Peter and Paul church, that was our parish, past127th over Cal Sag bridge to the woods around 139th. Our parent's never worried at all. I think all of us can agree we lived in a safe environment. I live near Orlando Fl. About ten years ago I took my wife, who is from a small town in Kansas, to see my old neighborhood, I had no idea the place looked like a war zone, how embarrassing. So then I took her to the Magnificent Mile and shopping changed her whole outlook, thank God.

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.

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.
