  1. I love this photo! No, T. Mobile, there was no such thing as computers then, nor colored t.v. People dressed so nice back then. Life was less complicated than today.

    • I remember during the Sunday Feasts as the Saints were carried through the neighborhood there would be woman each holding a section of a bedsheet to catch the coins that were tossed from the windows usually from elderly woman as the Saint passed by. It was a great time.

      • MichaelD Idk if you heard of the Newton feast St Mary of Carmen but the candelit procession at 10PM takes you back to the old NE days old ladies singing amazing while holding the candles.
