Check in on occasion just to see who shows up. Rarely do I see anyone from the late forties to mid sixties. Pullman public school and the ever present Fenger high school. Later after attaining legal age frequented some of the local dancing and watering establishments Carlos (harbor lights), Mocomba Lounge and the Rose bowl upstairs not the bowling alley with early morning breakfast at Tony's snack shop.
So I am asking if anyone remembers Phyllis Wasick or Don Rollins from that period please drop us a line as we are still alive and kicking with the standard we'd love to hear from ya.

The key to a good neighborhood is parental control, fear of the police,and belief in God..I too lived in Roseland, when I was a kid growing up in the good old days, everyone knew someone who knew you, only you didn't know who..If you came home and mom or dad were waiting for you, someone they knew saw you do something you shouldn't be doing...Let the punishment begin.. begin..and begin..In those days it wasn't known as child abuse, it was parental control...lol

We had dances at Medel on Sunday Nights, the Y dances I think were on Saturday, and the Battle of the Bands at the State Theater, in the summer it was swimming at Palmer Park or West Pullman Park, when you got to be a teenager it was Calumet Park Beach..You know Styx was from Roseland, only in those days they were known as TW Four...We had our groups/gangs that we hung out with, and if a dispute came about, it wasn't handled with a knife or a gun...It was skin on skin...only thing that ever got fired was a right hook or a left jab...with girls add kicking and pulling hair...Times and people have changed

Best of luck to you..It was a great place to grow up...
