Enjoy these family photos from Joe Roman. Thanks, Joe!
Hope you're all enjoying this surprise March snowstorm! Here's a photo taken by my grandfather of the 6200 block of Reedland Street after the blizzard of February, 1978.

The house second from right with the white bay windows was my grandparents' house, 6238 Reedland Street in Southwest Philly . I spent countless happy hours of my childhood there. It was sold exactly thirty years ago, and it's sad that I'll never go inside it again.
Where my story began: This second-floor apartment at 6200 Reedland Street in Southwest Philly is where I spent the first year of my life before moving to the 'burbs. I came back to SWP often to visit my grandparents, so I didn't really leave the neighborhood!
