As an 8 year old I knocked on doors selling seeds for flowers to earn a bow and arrow. As a 10 year old I shined shoes on the corner of Castle Hill and Westchester on Sundays. Ten cents a shine, usually got 25 cents. First on the books job was at Pioneer Grocers on Starling ave in Parkchester in the 50's. Yes. $ 1.00 an hour plus tips for deliveries of groceries.
