Comments: I grew on the 1700 block of Va. St. We were the last house standing from the Blvd to Piedmont when Arch had it all taken by eminent domain. Would love to see any pictures of that area if they are around. I may have overlooked them if they are already here.

Comments: I enjoyed your 1930 photo and article of the Patrick St bridge in the Charleston Gazette. My dad, Raymond E. Bolyard was one of the six men killed in the March 1929 accident. I was born in September 1929.

Comments: The section on Slack Street on your site is wonderful. My maternal great-grandparents were the Iacona's and my maternal grandfather was Domenico (Don) Sacco who owned the Sacco Service Station. It is wonderful to be able to see this information about my mother's side of the family. I have heard many stories from my mother, aunts, uncles, and grandmother (before she passed) about the Lido club and the service station. My mother's oldest sister has the most vivid memories of living in the home on Slack street. My mother's family moved from the Slack street home when my mom was about 8 months old (around 1950) to a home on the Kanawha Boulevard.
Regarding the Octopus theft (which I found very amusing). It was probably a dead one that was going to be used for a meal. Octopus and squid were a very common food in the region of Italy that my family originates from. My family still eats octopus or squid and it is a must every Christmas Eve.
Thank you so much for your web page!

Comments: You mentioned delivering newspapers to an African American dentist as a boy. You thought his name was Brown. My mother went to an AA dentist named Dr. Bradford in Charleston in the sixties. Does that name ring a bell perhaps? I'm not sure what street his practice was located.
Admin reply: It's possible. Was Dr Bradford Black?
