Throwback Thursday - The Notebooks

Uncle Fred also married and it did not set well with the Aunt. His wife was a second cousin. She was a lovely looking woman, who also died young. Leaving Tootsie, Charley, Arthur, Freddie, and Ellie to bring up. He had a shoe store, he sold and repaired shoes, which was in a good location in Wellesley at the train stop at the square [ed: the shop was first owned by his father-in-law, Ciriaco Ardolino]. Later he moved to a store a little further in the instersection. [ed. Washington St. across from the town hall]. He also owned his own house. The two bachelors [ed. Uncle Joe and Uncle Fred] went together to a number of events, banquets, dances, etc. Uncle Joe loved to dance at the American Legion. They loved us and when mother [ed: my wife] and I moved to Natick, they came regularly. I miss them.


  1. Another interesting glimpse into the past. Sounds like there were a lot of entrepreneurs on the family tree.
