Here’s my Father shoveling snow in front of our apartment in Saxonville, circa 1949. You can see The First National Store behind him, with a car parked in front. To the right, on the corner of Concord and Danforth, is the Schaltenbrands drug store. There was another market up Elm St. called Patrunos Market. (Thanks to Jack Gallimore, long time resident for the update and information.)
Here’s my Mother, probably the same day standing on the other side of the house looking down Elm St toward the Roxbury Carpet Co.
And finally, my Mother looking back at the camera in the springtime. Roxbury Carpet Co. behind her, trees in full blume.
