QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS:
HI TOM...I WANT TO COMMENT ABOUT THE PHOTO OF HAMILTON & PARK AVES. THAT WAS THE DEARDEN'S BUICK DEALERSHIP AS I RECALL. HIS BROTHER BILL DEARDEN, THE STATE COMMISSIONER, WAS OUR NEIGHBOR ON BERT AVE. I BELIEVE THE DEALERSHIP MOVED TO PA. SOMEWHERE. REGARDS.
Ralph:In the 1950's Fred Dearden had a showroom on Hamilton Ave. just past Norway, and before Hamilton and Liberty Merged.Fred was the DMV Commissioner, from whom I got a driver's license without takig a test. One of Fred's Republican buddies needed me to drive a truck during the Christmas rush.The photo shown looks like the Park lunchonette, just up the street from the Former Delorenzo's Tomatoe Pies.I think you may have the wrong corner. There was a big garage type build across Park Ave. from this view.Did you mean where the vacant lot is in this photo?Mike Kuzma
