I cannot remember his last name, but I can recall his telling me that he was of Italian and Hungarian descent. "Augie" resembled the late actor Robert Mitchum who, coincidentally, was also from Bridgeport. I believe he was here in southern California on a business trip? "Augie" would most likely be in his seventies today. Any information someone might have on him would be very much appreciated.

Comments:Hi, I am the wife of member William Conway. I was wondering if any other members worked at the summer day camp at St. Joseph High School in Trumbull in 1965, 1966? The CYO teens volunteered as counsellors and the teens from NYC (Neighborhood Youth Corps?) were paid. They thought we were crazy doing the same job for free. It was so much fun working there. We had a great time opening the fire hydrants to cool off when we couldn't go to Beardsley Park to swim because of the red algae. Made many friends. Wonder where the Neilson kids are - 2 sisters and their brother helped with the camp newsletter. Carmen Perez -and her friend Dale, are you out there? It was a wonderful experience. I think we all learned a lot. I have Fr. DeProfio to thank for encouraging me to get involved. I'd love to hear from anyone from the camp. Denise Conway deniseconway69@hotmail.com

Jin, your closing comment in your post to this site is an excellent example of how some old people just can't appreciate something good given to them and have to take a shot at the service provider. If you really like this site as you indicated I would suggest you take the time to go back through the many messages previously posted and find the email addresses of others who would have liked to join and perhaps you all can start your own site. That might be a better answer rather than putting the burden on Jim. I hope you take this message in the right spirit and do have a Happy Easter.

Comments:Come see the CBS-TV 20th Century Series episode, Class of 1958, Tuesday, November 2, 6-8:00PM, Bridgeport Public Library, 925 Broad Street. This television news program was taped at Warren Harding High School, and aired on CBS television on March 23, 1958. The program is narrated by Walter Cronkite. The program focused on four students who were struggling with what to do with their lives after high school. Scenes were filmed everywhere at Harding; the teachers lounge, assistant principals office, seniors conference room, several classrooms, hallways, and in the auditorium (during the traditional Thanksgiving pep assembly). The legendary principal, Frank J. McKee, was featured, as well as several teachers, all of whom were at Harding. Exterior scenes were filmed at Bunnys Restaurant & Caterers, and in Hedges Memorial Stadium. Former Harding teacher Mr. Edward Schneider, who is featured prominently in the film will also be present to share his thoughts on the program. For more info: RSVP (203) 576-7417 Mary Witkowski.

Comments:Sorry Stephanie, for some reason it did not print the rest of the info. The trains were very dusty. They did not travel at the rate of speed that the trains do today. To walk to Beardsley Zoo from the train station , you would turn right coming out of the parking area and follow East Washington Ave. passed the Bridgeport Brass Co. to North Ave. across Boston Ave. to Glendale to the Entrance of Beardsley Park and the Zoo. The Zoo is pretty much the same only bigger. The hot house is still there and the gardens, they added a hotdog stand and restrooms awhile back. The Zoo is well taken care of and so are the animals. Across from the Zoo on the other side of the water was the beach, a very popular swimming place for the eastsiders. It no longer exists, it is now the connector to the I 95 Thur -way. Going back to the train station, the new station was built in 1975, moving it from it's original place to 1/2 block west to Wter Street. The station is 55.4 miles to Grand Central Terminal in

Comments:Stephanie DeGhett, I hope I can help you with some of the info. you asked for. I grew up on the east end from 1942 to 1958. Went to Edison, Summerfield and Grad. from Harding H.S.in 1959. The pie factory was called the Frisbie Pie Co. and it was on Pulaski St. near Kossuth St. It was demolished and Hi-Li of Bridgeport was built near the site. Hi-Li no long exists and if you are on the I95 thru-way you can see the area which is mounds of dirt and large trucks. As far as the train station, it was just over the Stratford Ave. bridge spanning the Poquonock River. It was made of wood. It had large wooden planks for a floor, a ticket counter, with benches on the opposite side to sit to wait for your train and behind the benches on the wall was the train sched. and if you missed your train going into NYC. Another train would be by shortly. You could buy your ticket on the train. It was a 2 seater with a isle in the middle and the trains were very noisey and bumpy. Not very clean and very dust

What was the Beardsley Zoo like in the 1960s? What was the train station like in the 1960s? How would you get from the train station to the zoo if you didn't have a car? What was the train trip into NYC like in the 1960s? Anyone know how often the train ran? What building/parking lot/empty lot was at the site of the former pie factory on Kossuth Street?

Moved to and lived in NY for 30 years before relocating to Florida a few years ago. What was I thinking?!?! :-) Tonight I was reminiscing in my own mind about all the great memories I had during my 21 years in Connecticut and decided to 'google' St. Charles for starters....then I found your website and it is absolutely ASTOUNDING!!! Thanks very much for the 'Bridgeport Time Capsule' trip you provided me tonight on your website with the contributions from others!! I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of your site and have passed the links onto my former Connecticut classmates, friends and relatives so they can also reminisce in what, for all of us, was probably one of the best places to grow up in the 50s, 60s and 70s!! Keep up the good work! I'll try to contribute some of my own photos - both old and new in hop

Comments:Hi Bonnie, It's been along time since those dancing days. I believe I grad. with your brother from Summerfield School in 1955. I also danced prof. for 3 yrs. even after I was married. Remember Carol Ritz? We both auditioned for the Copa Cabanna in 1960 and I got the part as lead dancer I worked there for 4 mths, worked with Paul Anka, Steve and Eddie Gormay, Cab Calloway, Joey Bishop. but like you I wanted to raise a family and you can't have that kind of life and children at the same time......so I'm Married 50 yrs. in Nov.,2 children and 3 beautiful grand-daughters. I made the right decision......Angela lives around the corner from me and will be married 48 yrs, 6 children and 2 grandchildren. As far as the Ritz Ballroom, it's no longer there, it's been gone for a long time. The building is still there. We had good times there. We all have good memories of those days. Keep in touch. Marie

I graduated in 1957 from Harding and my husband, Andy Lampart, graduated in 1952. He owned the A & L Appliance Store on the corner of Bell St. and Boston Ave. So many names are familiar to me, especially Marie & Angela who were dancers like me. I am the proud mother of eleven children and 31 grandchildren and enjoying retirement in Florida. Love to volunteer, dance, go to church and socialize. My brother, Wesley and sisters Dorothy, Jayne and Denice also attended schools in Bridgeport. I danced professionally for 3 years and finally did what I really wanted to do - marry and raise a big family. Keep those wonderful memories alive and share whatever you have from the "good old days."

Comments:Regarding the EAST END boundary discussion: Historically, according to members of the old "East End Originals" Club, whose membership was made up of East Enders from our parents, grandparents, and even great grandparents era, the Yellow Mill Bridge on Stratford Ave was the beginning of the East End - once you crossed the bridge heading east on Stratford Avenue you were in the East End. These old timers considered the northern boundary of the East End to be the New Haven Railroad tracks, stretching from Seaview Ave on the west (you might recall that it ran parallel to the Yellow Mill Pond) to where the railroad crossed over Bishop Ave near the Stratford town line. The southern boundary was, of course, Long Island Sound. Some folks considered the northern boundary to be Barnum Ave, and, after Harding was built for East End kids to attend during the 1920's, some moved the boundary further north to Boston Ave. Seems to be a lot of flexibility in later years.

I have complete copies of Bullard Havens yearbooks from 63 .64 and 65 the year I graduated. If anyone would like a page scanned and emailed to you, let me know. I would be happy to send a page or two along that may have interest to you. Best wishes to all and thanks Jim for a great site!

The name Aldrich sounds familiar, but I can't place it. Did you know Patty and Gail Reardon, Maureen Redmond, Joan McFarland, Joey Romano? I have a sister named Angela. If someone was talking about us they would usally refer to us as the Buonaguro sisters. I don't know how long you lived there. I graduated from Harding in 1959. How about you..... Marie

Comments:In reply to John Alfonso about the public housing track behind Bullard Havens, it was called the Brady Homes, which included Pearl Harbor St. part of Wessels Ave., Wake St., Pearl Harbour Circle, and another st. off of Pearl Harbor along side of the playground, Success Park Vill. was right behind the Brady Homes and then there was a strip of stores across the street from Success Park. There was Bert's clothing store, card store hardware store, grocery store, pizza restaurant and a few more small store. Just thought you would like to know the name of that public housing. Everyone knew everyone. We had the best neighbors and friends. It was the best place to grow up. I lived there from [ 1944 to 1958 ] Nothing but good memories. Your friend Marie

From a very busy Downtown to East Main street, people went all out decorating. Anyone have old Christmas pics? How about photos of the old Christmas village? Every downtown store had a Santa, and I hit everyone of them. Anybody out there still have any photos of the old days of the season? Would LOVE to relive them. Thx! Frank

Hadn't thought of her for years until I saw her name on the Remembrance page. She lived with her Mom, who was a single parent, in the public housing track behind Tech. Can't remember what it was called. Whatever the circumstances of her passing it was much too soon. She a sweetie.

Comments:I was a friend of the Very Reverend Father Stephen "Kenny" Karaffa (Harding Class of 1961). I'd like to share this information with you. He was a Russian Orthodox Priest and was attending a conference in Pittsburgh when he died of a heart attack. He had two grown children: daughter Laryssa who is married to a Russian Orthodox priest and has three children. Son Kevin lives near Allentown and has two children. I am sorry you did not know him as a Priest. The best way I can describe him is "He, an unworthy servant (as he many times called himself), did the Will of God with Humility." He was a true and wonderful Priest and had real calling from God. You could see it in all that he did. Kenny spoke about all of you all the time. He wanted to go back and relive those wonderful memories. Please fill me in on the "years gone by." After hearing so many things about yesterday, I feel as though I was there too. Please write back.

Comments: I was goggling something about Bridgeport and ran across this site Ė it was fun seeing some of the names I remember from years gone past. I attended Beardsley School through eighth grade (graduated in 57) and moved to Stratford where I attended High School. Bridgeport was a great place to grow up and I have pleasant memories Ė although school was not one of them as I never opened a book or cared about anything other than sports and having a good time. Fortunately, I learned the error of my ways and made sure my kids didnít follow in my footsteps. In fact my son teaches in Bridgeport Ė I suspect the tallest first grade teacher in Bpt. if not the state @ 6í 8Ē. I will advise my two sisters of this sight since they also attended Beardsley School, my older sister attended one year at Harding.

Although I grew up in Fairfield in the 1950's and 1960's, I remember going to these theaters for movies with my older brother and cousins. We were able to ride the CR&L bus from our neighborhood in Fairfield, into Bridgeport for Saturday matinees. I remember seeing many early Walt Disney movies and feature length cartoons like Pinochicco. After the movies we would wait for a bus back to the suburbs by Levitt's. I remember going to the Lowe's Poli many times, but I was only in the Majestic once. The one visit to the Majestic was in the beginning of it's decline. The theater had been rented for the showing of a special Billy Graham Movie that was arranged by local churches. The theater was showing it's age, and by that time we had migrated to the Beverly, the Hiway, the Community and County Cinema movie houses. Before the mall in Trumbull was built my mother would shop at Rea

Bob takes a lot of pride in growing up and playing ball on the East End of Bridgeport. There are also all the guys he played softball with through the years. The date is November 12th, 7:00pm at Liddells in Stratford Ct. The phone number is 203-375-2958. Call for tickets.

Is it possible for you to add a blurb in your newsletter asking anyone who knows someone that graduated from Central in 1965 to contact me, Nancy, at jonesinct@aol.com? It would be greatly appreciated. You never know who knows who? This will be our 45th reunion!

My buddies & I used to cook potatoes behind the AP, movies on Saturdays (all day for 14cents), jump bushes & trees all along Brooks St.. I used to work at Louie Licamelle's drug store up on Boston Ave. across from the "Green". He gave me a free pint of ice cream every Sunday; wow, what a bonus! That C&RL bus line was our means to the rest of the world! And yes, I do remember the"junk man" with his horse & wagon going around the East Side. Yes, we went into the Rexall drug store across from St.Charles Church & also Golden's drug store a few blocks up East Main St. Wow, what memories; I'll stop for now.

Comments:I was trying to find a copy of the 1955 Harding yearbook when I surfed into this great site. Ex-Yellow Mill Village (Court F), and ex Waltersville, graduating in 1949. Went to Harding for two years, then moved to the west side, graduating Bassick. Court F was on the corner of Hamilton and Hallett...poor in finances, but as youngsters with limited resources, a very rich environment to grow in...all day at no-batteries-required play with kids from all types of families. Impossible to call out a single, top memory, but don't we all remember walking, walking, walking--to the A&P or to the movies on Esat Main, up the hill to Harding, downtown for Thursday night shopping, over to Pleasure Beach to fish the pier, and sometimes to Beardsley for a swim. If the walk was just too much, it was that rickety old bladder-busting Barnum and State bus line that got us across town. Ayyy, something to be said for life on the dear old East Side.

Comments:I'm researching an old film, THE CREEPING TERROR, produced, directed, and starring former Bridgeport resident Arthur N. White. White was born around 1938 and grew up in Bridgeport. His mother, Florence (Handy) White, lived in Father Panik village. He had a sister named Charlotte, and a brother (possibly named John). In the mid-1950s he married Lois Whittlesey and moved to California. He later made a film called STREET FIGHTER (1959), and filmed at least a few sequences in Bridgeport. The film had an opening in Bridgeport, with some degree of fanfare surrounding it. He later married another Bridgeport girl, Barbara Wheeler. She later moved back to Bridgeport. He died in the 1970s. Can anyone help me find more information about Arthur White, some of his former wives, or his activities in Bridgeport, or the film STREET FIGHTER being filmed in Bridgeport, or its opening? I'm writing an article about White and his films.

However, the sad news is that someone wants to change the name. This is not a new school. Waltersville School has a lot of history behind it. Then, why change the name? I am requesting your help.

Comments:I'm searching for any information that could lead me to ANY blood relative of Scott Lewin Kelley, born Nov 14, 1955 in Bridgeport CT. He attended Harding High, maybe around 1969-1970. I know he has siblings, I think 3, the only name I have is a possible "Linda". The reason for my search: Scott passed away from massive brainstem stroke damage. We were very close, we lived together until this happened. The problem is until a blood relative gives permission, his body cannot be released from the hospital for cremation and he will become a county problem and end up in some kind of pauper's grave. He has been TOTALLY estranged from his family since he moved out here (San Diego), which was roughly 20 years ago. I know he had 3 children and an ex-wife. I know he was raised in the Jewish faith. I know his parents are deceased. If there is anyone that might know ANYTHING that would lead me to a relative I would be so grateful. Thank you, Rebecca Frederick, 619-840-1827 or email.

Comments:This is the first entry in the new East Enders' Alumni Association Guest Book. I hope this Guest Book proves to be more "user friendly" than the previous Guest Book.
