Click graphic for some interesting historical info about your neighborhood.

Notice the neighborhood boundaries identified in the booklet. When did Richmond Hill go that far to the east?

Yeah, they trotted out the trollops during the 1940 season to rake in some cash cuz they were going bankrupt. Just like Moses' other bankrupt fair in 1964-- anyone recall "Les Poupees de Paris?" Don't ask me to translate, but I'm prety sure it was T&A and not "the Poop of Paris".
