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.

Being "locked down" I have all this extra time on my hands, so I found myself browsing your amazing site again. I noticed that the photo "Resurrection Elementary 5th grade Class - 1975", doesn't have any names associated with the picture.

Here they are from top to bottom, left to right:

I am working on a walking tour of downtown Pittsburgh to celebrate the Women's Suffrage anniversary of 19th amendment passage with the Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation. I have found some wonderful photos on your brooklineconnection.com site.

Good Morning. You have a terrific historical site.

I lived in Brookline back in 1978 when I was attending Duquesne University.

I am a retired US Marine currently live in Florida. I give a series of lectures on history for a local college and I am doing one on George Washington's trips to Pittsburgh 1753-1755. You have some greaat illustrations that I would love to use in my presentation.

I searched your web site and could not find anything about TONER Inst. I went there back in the early '50s. We would march in the parades on Brookline Blvd. I was in the Drum and Bugle with Toner.

I think your site is great and I would like to thank the person who started it.
