TALKING WITH FRIENDS FROM WINTHROP, BILL PIMENTEL AND HONEY DILLON, IS LIKE TAKING A WALK DOWN MEMORY LANE!
That's Marilynn's second grade photograph when she attended the Shirley Street School in 1948. Her teacher was Winona Wiggins.
Marilynn no longer had braids. The dress was either a hand-me-down from cousins or friends or was purchased at Sam Miller's clothing shop across and down from Stover's Pharmacy.
We loved reading Bill Pimentel's post about the houses in which he grew up in Winthrop, so we thought we'd mention a few of the memories of Winthrop which we recently shared in a conversation with Elaine (Honey) Broder Dillon, who went to school with Sheila.
We loved Ham's Restaurants and the pies they baked and served. Two of our favorites were Lemon Meringue and a Lattice-Crusted Prune and Apricot Pie with a dusting of powdered sugar on top. We found out recently that our friend Ann Butler's aunt used to bake the pies and cakes and other pastry at Ham's.
We grew up in the Beach Section, and we loved the stores on Shirley Street. Four butchers, and everyone had business.
Italian Subs at Terry's, and their Meatball Sub was great too in Winthrop Centre.
Browsing and shopping at The Spinning Wheel gift shop in Winthrop Centre where we bought our mother a Fostoria glass serving platter and my Nancy Drew books.
Cooking class in the seventh grade where the first thing we learned to cook was white sauce!
