Hello,


When I was a kid on Fordham Ave, I would hear the Toner boys playing a march on the hill oppposite our house. I think it was a drum and bugle corp. Does anyone know the name of the march they played?


This last week I came upon a recording of someone playing the march but couldn't find it when I later looked.

Wonderful pages! I was born and raised in Brookline (Lynnbrook Ave), went to Ressi, South Catholic (for 2 years) then to Pitt (commuter). Left in 78 for eastern PA but never forget Pittsburgh and Brookline are my home. The pictures on these pages brought back great memories, but also evoked some sadness seeing the demolition at Ressi of the buildings where I went to school with all my boomer classmates when catholic schools still thrived. Hope you keep these pages going and add more pictures and memories for all current and old Brookliners to see and wax nostalgic over. THANK YOU!

Hello! Very nice website. On your page about Forbes Field, the pictures of the Pirates hosting the Expos at Forbes Field seems to be May 1970, not June as indicated. The reason is the umpire appears to be Satch Davidson, who was there in May but not June. Also, the first baseman is Al Oliver, who played first base in the May games but not in the June games.

Thanks for the insight and correction.

Hi -- I was born in Brookline and raised in Bethel Park and although I haven't lived there for over 30 years it still feels like home. I love, love, love reading all the history you've accumulated. The stories, the facts, the pictures: every bit of it is a treasure!

Thanks for all the efforts to create and maintain this site!

I am a Los-Angeles based film producer working with Emmy-nominated director Mickey Duzyj and the Oscar-winning studio A24 on an exciting feature documentary about 1970s World Team Tennis.

Using present day interviews, archival footage and animation, the film will unravel the fun and raucous story of the early years of World Team Tennis - recognizing that the league's focus on equality, inclusivity, and accessibility was decades ahead of its time.

It must have been a very exciting time for you - working with the Triangles at such a young age. I've read wonderful things about your late uncle Danny. I'm very sorry for your loss.

I'd love to talk with you about your experiences with the team. Please let me know if you're available this week or perhaps this weekend for a call.

Thank you so much and I look forward to hearing from you.
