    Wow, I was born in ’60, so I don’t remember, but my parents always talked about how rough it was with the dirt roads. My mother always said what a workout it was to push a baby carriage up to the Ave. And don’t forget, none of the Mothers drove, so they walked to the Ave and back in that with groceries every day.
