About Me

Our family was oriiginally from the North End of Boston, then subsequently ended up

over in the West End section.  Even to date I recall some events and things

growing up there as a very young kid.  It was a great time.  Our familiy relocted

to South Medford in 1960 where I/we grew up and then went our separate ways as adults.

About Me

I am a young adventurist who appreciates the old things long past.  Some call it nostalgia but since I wasn't born or raised in the West End era I can appreciate the history and those that hold it close to their hearts.  Perhaps it is a need to search of my own past that is unknown to me that draws me to the history and comradery of such a neighborhood that I wished I could have belonged to.  Eitherway as part of the younger generation ("Gen X") there is something that we all could learn from the more..... well I was gonna say "older generation" but I'd rather put it experienced generation that I see in this organization.

About Me

My name is Marie Guarino Testa.   The youngest of seven children (all are still alive and well) born to Rose Passanisi and Vincent Guarino who came to America from Augusta Scicly.  Forced to move in my last year of High School, we landed in Somerville Ma.  I met my late husband Alfred Testa from Kennard Ave, after moveing and not realy knowing him when growing up.   Through out the years I have keep in touch with many friends and relatives who have nothing but good memories of the West End. I coordinated the first  Ladies Brunch which was a great success and I am looking forward to doing it again.  Thanks

About Me

My name is John Hession and I lived at 3 Irving Street at the corner of Cambridge Street. I "graduated" from the Blackie in 1953. Was recently in touch with Davy Pokat who sent me a copy of our Jr. High class picture. I just about fell over! Were we ever that young?

Went into the USAF after high school and graduated from St. Mary's in Texas after many long night classes on the G.I. bill. Today, I am divorced, semi-retired, live in Redmond, WA and am the proud father of two fine young men . Only other West Enders that I know are Jerry Poliskey- now in Calif. and Frankie Carista, now in FL. Places I fondly remember are the Burroughs Club, The West End House and Klayman's (sp?) Deli. My maternal grandparents lived at 83 Chambers Street, a few doors up and across the street from St. Joe's, where I took my First Communion and Confirmation and lived in mortal fear of Father Powers. My grandfather was well known along Chambers Street for his English Whippet named Zipper.

About Me

My Mother is Josephine Cerrone. Her married name is Josephine Ann Carbone and she was born at home in the West End on October 22, 1931.

 

My grandparents were Cosimo and Grazia Carbone. They fled Mussolini and fascism in Italy and came through Ellis Island. My grandfather, Cosimo, had been coming to Boston for 18 years: 3 years in Boston, 3 years in Italy. He was a mason.

 

My grandmother, Grazia Maria, did not want to leave her home and family but it was apparent that they had to. In the fall of 1928, Cosimo left Italy for Boston and immediately naturalized.  By early 1929, my aunts Rosaria ("Rose") and Eufemia ("Mamie") along with my Uncle, Stefano ("Steve") came to the U.S. by way of Ellis Island where their names are inscribed on the walls. Two years later, my Mother, Josephine Ann, was born.

 

When my Mother was a child, Cosimo bought a two family home in Watertown and moved out of the West End. My Mother did years of volunteer work for the Don Orion Home and my own childhood is filled with memories of their annual Strawberry Festival. My Mom's best friends in those days were Anna Costa and Virginia Luvisi who were also very active at the Don Orion Home.

 

If there is anyone that knew the Carbone's, it would be wonderful to hear from you. My Mother, Josephine ("Jo") is now 78 years old and living in West Newton and also Boynton Beach, FL..
