Hey does anyone remember when there was a shoe store on 24th and Aspen also here is another one.. Does anyone remember the old guy from Taylor St named Mr. Graham. He had the Garage full of really old stuff and had the wooding car..amongst other things to help the memory the garage was between Aspen and Brown... Also in the same are where houses stand now the garden that was on taylor st.... I also remember when the Reliant building was empty and playing inside the place...r I also remember Maxine when it was at 25th and Parrish, had the best milk shakes.... also the cleaners that was across the street..The little things in life were just so great. gone but not forgotten. Hey K-man Tony Archer was the best looking guy from my time, Rosco is still the funniest, Herman back when O'laps had the softball team was the craziest, I remember him being naked on the front of a truck at the end of the guys softball season, growing up in Fairmount for the most part was a good life, Shame that life comes and takes over but we ahve our memories...

Wow!!! Kudos to you K...you have turned this guest book around....very cool!!!!

I loved that walk down memory lane...that is the Fairmount I know and love!!! I can see the differnet generations as they reply ...haha I am sort of in the middle.

Remember... Boyles Tumble Inn, Harry Boyle, always know for his long ash on his cigarette as he was bartending, The Morning Glory, I never went there...but my parents did, haha! The Parkway Room (the original one) When Gene owned the place...with the paino player. Jumbo's (the original ) when Jumbo was alive Nicks Bar at Judson and Brown Wow! I mention all bars ...lol!

Does anyone remember when the town houses at 24th and brown/ringgold st was the slaughter house (i think that is what it was)?

My generation use to party in the factory at 29th street...we must have been insane, walking through there drunk...climbing up steps that hung from the roof and were missing many of the steps. Drinking out the bridge...that still goes on...hahaha!!!

Pigs Alley? Gibbies at 23 and parrish? Mr. & Mrs. Gibb Lottie the woman who took care of the laundrymat at bucknell and Brown?

Some names I recall Porky ~ Georgie Barbera....I seen him recently...still as Bad as he was back then...lol! Johnny Barbera...I read he was the sane one? I think not...lol! John was the "ladies man" back in the day...haha! not anymore....and I am allowed to trash John since I been around him for the past 20 years.

Anyone remember Tucker Eden? He was shot by the SWAT and killed on his roof? He was cool...he saved me from a nigger trying to kidnap me on bucknell street...he beat that man so bad with his bare hands...and then beat him some more with a trash can...sadly he was taken to soon. Anyone remember Number 9 aka Richie (can't think of his last name)?

Remember opening day for FSA...all the teams gathered at 24th and aspen....and were lead by the Vets to baseball fields (von colon) and then the big bar-b-que they would have out there.....8-) If you were a girl you always wanted to be on the team "babydolls" baby blue t-shirt and hat...lol!



Well now I have to go pull out the old photos....so I can drop more names here...haha! they were the best of times...fairmount was a place in its own....bordered by the color... from corinthian to 29th.....poplar to fairmount ave.....funny how every one that lived in that box some how or some way knew each other or were related...and watched out for eachother and their kids.

Pete the Greek?????? anyone remember him??? haha!!! that death list breaks my heart.....they were all taken to soon they say the good die young and the names mention ...were the good they may have had their faults but they always had your back...come hell or high water....

Rob Pierson Jr. is hanging with the good guys right now... and his family is in my thoughts and prayers

To Lauren, Your doing a great!!! Your brother is proud of you! take it from a sister who lost her brother to soon, your keeping him alive through your memories with him and through your positive words.



Kramer, I think Sissy Gillis was the craziest girl in that neighborhood. LOL!!!



RIP to ALL who have gone way before their time You are sadly missed, but never forgotten

To my Uncle Bobby Gillis and my brother Jimmy Cornish, You are always on my mind, and forever in my heart I Miss You.................





after re-reading this, I am thinking damn! I must have A.D.D. hahaha!!!
