Jerry, many thanks, I have spent a few hours just looking at the photos and remembering. I still come home when I can, and you are correct, WVA is always home no matter where you go or where you end up. Many thanks for a superb Web Site. Regards

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!

Jerry,

Is it ok to use the Charleston Levy photo for a school project?

Your work is terrific.

Thanks

Laura

Admin reply: Yes, as long as it's not reproduced on the Internet for all to see.

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?

Admin reply: Thank you! I'm always trying to get things right. Oddly enough, the newspaper spelled it wrong quite often apparently.

I was born in Kanawha Valley Hospital in 1941 and grew up in Charleston. I no longer dwell there, but get back occasionally to visit family. Wish I could do it even more often. Almost every photo on your site triggers a petite madeleine or two. . .or more. I had a Daily Mail paper route downtown in my late adolescence. And I can recall every stop on that route as if it were yesterday. I had several subscribers in the Security Building on Capitol Street. On the ground floor there was a concession stand and the man who ran it was blind. He informed me one day that he could FEEL the difference between all paper currency denominations. Blew my mind! There was a barber shop in the basement but I always patronized the Lyric Barber Shop on Lee Street whose schtick was a very light-skinned troupe of barbers who snipped away at a strictly white clientele.
