Growing up in Southwest Philly.  Here's one of my aunt, Karen Daven Moy, and me hanging out on 63rd Street circa 1970.

Mom, my aunts, and me in Grays Avenue, 1969.
Here I am at about eighteen months with my mom and my aunts.  This picture was taken on Grays Avenue in front of Our Lady of Loreto Church.  It looks as if one of my aunts had been in a wedding there.  Mattera's is in the background.  The date on the side of the picture says October, 1968.

Ah, Durso's!  Who didn't love Durso's? A huge part of growing up in Southwest Philly.
