4th parade (1970's)

 This is a neighborhood parade in the 1970's
with one brave mom and about half the neighbor kids.
At one time we had 15 young 'uns on our side of the street in one block of five houses.
Those were the days when they played outside all day and only came home to eat, drink and use the "facilities." Of course there were kids on the other side of the Drive so we had quite a bunch.


  1. I remember days like that. We had a dozen little girls in 5 houses and they all played together every day. If it was cold they just put their coats and hats on. What happened to those days? they are nice memories.

  2. They are nice memories. It was the same when I was a kid and that was in the '30's! I hope there are still those neighborhoods where it happens.
