Nostalgia – WPC

Kids in Brooklyn

Playing  out in the streets

Games of a bygone era

A “Spaldeen”

High bounce ball

Endless games to play



Stick ball

Where manhole covers are bases


Large circles chalked on the payment

For I Declare War On


Sidewalk handball



Hand ball on brick walls



Stoop ball on my uncle’s front steps

Memories half  buried


Like marbles in the dirt

    1. Thanks, sometime you get an idea in your head and then you have to figure out to make it happen. None of these games have ever been played here in NH. Here the streets are lined with basketball hoops. Thanks

    1. It is amazing how much the world has changed since we were kids, I can remember my first crystal radio, watching TV on a round picture tube and stations going off the air at midnight
