Book Review: Fascinating memoir Book about South Fairmount
'Every Life is a story and This is Mine": a Memoir and Recollection by Dennis E Ekardt is a compelling slice of life book that includes some great recollections of growing up in South Fairmount. This book really puts a 'face' on the neighborhood and the German and Italian immigrants that lived here. You really get a sense of what the neighborhood was like back them. The book has some great old photos too.
Available on line at places like amazon or borders and it is available as an ebook too.
