My family moved from Beechview to East Brookline in 1949. We Lived in no less than six houses - two on Gallupe Dr., two on Milan Ave., Brookline Blvd. and Altmar St. I attended Carmalt when it was a K-3 school. Fourth grade through eighth were at Brookline, and then South Hills High. I served in the Army during the Vietnam Conflict. I graduated from Duquesne University and almost immediately left for St. Louis for a federal civilian job with the Army. I got married to a Mount Oliver girl and we had two boys, moved to Huntington, WV and then eventually to Wilmington, NC where we have lived for the past 37 years. We will celebrate our 50th anniversary next year.

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Williams!!!

Thank you for posting the link to my book, BROOKLINE DAYDREAMS. You asked if there are any "sneak previews". The answer is yes! If one were to go to the link provided it is possible to read portions of the book be it as a Kindle download or paperback FREE OF CHARGE!

Here is the link again: Amazon.com/dp/B086B9V1F5/ref

Thank you again. Hope everyone enjoys the book

I grew up in Brookline and have recently wrote a book of the experience. It is called "Brookline Daydreams". It is a work of fiction but based on true experiences and characters with some obvious exceptions. My father was Nino of Nino's Barber Shop, which you have a photo of him and my mother in front of the shop which was across from the cannon.

If at all possible could you please post a link of the book which is available on Amazon. If so, could you also includ a screen shot of the cover which is on the same link.

A review of the book from a Connie M. states what the book means to a Brookliner. It says that the book is a 'Brookline Masterpiece". Please read the review for yourself.

The link is: Amazon.com/dp/B086B9V1F5/ref

Thanks for a great website...well done!

NO PROBLEM, Michael. Any sneak previews?

Thanks for the information.

Are there any books published about Bucks County PA about those who lived there 1770's? Looking for Native American connection.
