I grew up in Roseland first on 107th&Indiana from 1960 to1970 then we moved to 112w114 th st.My sister went to Fenger and my brother Mendal hs.I went to van vlissingen,St.Nicks and then St.Louis before moving in 1975.This had to be the most perfect place to live the dimestore,gatleys,palmer pk,hobby shop and on .I still remember summer fogging and my sister and I running into the fog.The fire department opened the hydrants so we could keep cool.The sidewalk sale on the ave every July.Also the fireworks in the park and swimming at the park too.And gatleys you could write ten pages on that place,we got everything from school uniforms to grocerys.It was a city within a store.These were golden years and I am so gald I was a part of it.

I lived at 11039 S. Edbrooke until I was 13, "down the hill" from "The Ave."I recall Dave's Market on the hill at 111th which later became Nino's Pizza, take out only. Also loved to hang out in Gateley's and watch the donuts go around. I moved to 564 E. 105th St and made the long trip to 'VV" for 8th grade to graduate rather than transfer to Poe. Graduated from Fenger Jan 1955. Bought a 1950 Pontiac Chieftan convertible, straight eight, black with red leather interior and cruised "The Ave." After 38 years in Tampa moved back "home" to Tinley Park.
