MEMOIRS OF SCHOOL STREET VILLAGE
Thanks so much for the great response to this blog!
A special thank you to those who have passed it on to others. We are heading quickly to amazing page visits to this blog! Welcome to folks from all over the country and other countries as well, including Lisbon!!
The "Village", as it was called, is located in the northwest corner of the city of Taunton, Massachusetts U.S.A. It covers about 1 square mile with the center being School Street. A large portion of the Village population was Portuguese when I was growing up.
This blog covers a lot of the history of the Village, much to do with my years as a child there: 1940 through the late 1950's. I do have many wonderful photos and information prior to that that and will share those as well. Always looking for MORE PHOTOS AND MORE STORIES TO TELL.
If you would like to send photos or share a memory of growing up in the Village
e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org

I am looking for any and all photos of the Village...

I appreciate the opportunity to participate in my sister's blog as a guest blogger.
This is a snapshot in the auditorium of Fuller School.The individuals are: the President of the PTA, Mr. Aristides Andrade and our Principal, Miss Sophia Dupont. She was so poised and encouraged us to be our best in every thing we endeavored to do. Years later as a young adult I visited with her at her home on Church Green many afternoons.
She was a wonderful role model for all of us.She was impeccably attired and always so gentile.Sandy and I talked about her having beautifully manicured "red"fingernails Imagine! I do not remember her ever being out of sorts always in control.
