I was born in 1950 and lived for seven years on the east side of Baltimore City. That's where this photo was taken while I was posed on a neighbors bike and wearing his cowboy outfit. When we played I was always the "injun", which was fine by me. That is my house in the background. I wish they would have included the marble steps that have been taken away now. We all used to scrub them, and the sidewalks and gutters on Saturdays. That row home is boarded up and our street is in ruin. I have never lived more than 35 miles from there, including my present home in Havre de Grace that I share with my wife of 37 years. My children are grown and have moved as far away as Boston, but we keep close and visit often. I still love riding my bike, photography, wood carving/burning, reading, cooking, bird watching and playing my guitar. I am a retired teacher (kindergarten, special ed. and 2nd grade)and see some of my former students every day in the community. Life is good.
