Park Street and St. Monica's

Postby peter c » Sun Oct 01, 2017 8:47 pm

I am still hoping to hear from anyone who lived on Park Street in the late 40's and early 50's. I lived at #21 from 47 to 57. I'm sure there are still some lads left who remember.
Also I would love to hear from others who went to St. Monica's in the 50's.
Thanx.
Peter

The only name I remember is Kevin Davies. He had two brothers Brian and Ron. I lived directly across from them in the prefab number 21. A good pal of mine, Tom Smith, lived on Part Street too closer to Stanley Rd. It's been a long time but I still have good memories of that time. I thought St. Monica's was an ok school - didn't know any different. I had some good friends there.

Hi Danny. Yes it was a bit rough, especially in the winter. You are right, Mr. Barry would not be tolerated today. I was only there for about two years then I went to Tech. and I have been in Canada since 1957. I'm sure there have been big changes.
Cheers,

Peter
