Playing “cops and robbers” in the alley . . . Hanging out at Heck's . . . Visits from the “umbrella man” . . . penny candy at the corner store . . . and lots more!

Reviews
This book is a “must read” for anyone who enjoys taking a walk down memory lane. The delightful little vignettes put a human face on many area institutions and shed a new light on many parts of our city we overlook or take for granted. — Sun Newspapers
The authors have poured a lot of themselves, and Cleveland's rich neighborhood history, into these delightful vignettes about the Near West Side. Where else can you browse through one book and discover the paaaaper-rex man, the tinker, Perkins Beach or the Fairyland Theater? You won't find John D. Rockefeller or Marcus Hanna in these pages. But you might recognize a long-lost neighbor from 1950. — The Plain Dealer
