I agree...we would say we were from Bainbridge, or "Gun Hill" as opposed to someone from "Fordham". Folks would say..I am from Kingsbridge, but I never knew anyone who said they were from "Bedford"! My older cousins and brothers would say they were from "Belmont"...but years later in the 70's my high school pals would say they were from "Arthur Ave."! I am glad you were able to recall the location of the original Norwood News. I knew it was within that immediate area, thanks for pinpointing the location! I had my model car collection displayed at the 205th. library back around 1966 or so! I was about 10 years old at the time! It was, as Andy Warhol said all would have, my 15 minutes of fame in my lifetime!
