    My Great Uncle Charlie Balzarini is in the first ,second, third, and fourth photos.

    I knew that was Charlie Balzarini and now I recognize Leroy Silva. To us old timers that wasn’t so long ago.

    I wish we had a place like that today.

      That would be really nice. I guess the closest we have would be Brother’s Brew, but not really the same. I still miss the coffee shop that used to be where Walgreen’s is today.

    As a child, my sister and I used to stay with our grandparents, Ken and Elizabeth Vincent, for a couple of weeks during the summers. I remember “Charlie the fisherman”, as we called him, coming to their home selling fresh fish from the back of his old truck. There’s was nothing better than fresh fish for dinner!

  8. Bob Travers says:

    The Charlie you refer to was Charlie Nelson who sold fresh fish from his truck for many years.

  9. Mary Mintz says:

    Definitely Charlie….I took care of him when I worked for Action years ago at Millbrook Park

  10. Wayne Tanson says:

    Yes, Charlie back-and-forth … who among us has not had a ride in Charlie’s truck ? Charlie told me he was born in the house I grew up in at 33 Curtis St.
