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

I went to St Monica,s we were the first in after the hospital had cleared out, their were still lots of hospital gear lying about, any way the headmaster Mr O'donell decided we would start a vegie garden down past the boiler room along the wall--this was going well until we started digging up human bones-legs,arms ect -we put them all back and scrapped that idea ! :D
