Just Us Kids in the AlleyJust Us Kids in the Alley

It was at a time when Americans were facing the gloomiest, and the most non-promising economic outlook they had ever known. Yet,those were the moments when as a boy, and with his little friends, played together behind the “Row Houses”that we lived in. We played in the school yards, on hills, and enjoyed the camaraderie of each other. Just Us Kids in the Alley relates stories of our zany, hilarious and happy moments. There were moments of anticipation, team participation, and also, moments of sadness.

We were a care free group, us alley kids, in spite of the dangers that lie ahead in the world. A world to us which was alien, and a million miles away in our thinking at that time! Yes, it was the “Thirties”. My memories as a little boy growing up in that era with his little friends in Northwest Philadelphia are memories I will never forget, nor want to forget, as long as I live.

The Thirties were a time when Americans were facing the gloomiest and the most non-promising economic outlook they had ever known. Yet, those were the moments when as a boy, and with his little friends, played together behind the Row Houses that we lived in. We played in the school yards, on hills and in the woods, and enjoyed the camaraderie of each other. This Edition is a follow up to my first book, which is titled, JUST US KIDS IN THE ALLEY. This new Edition will focus on more of those zany, hilarious and happy moments, as kids, growing up in Northwest Philadelphia in the thirties. Yes, it was the thirties. But, we were a care free group, us alley kids, in spite of the dangers that lie ahead in the world. A world to us which was alien, and a million miles away in our thinking at the time! >
