I remember going to PS #38 back in the early 1970's where we had the breakfast program and the swimming pool. Memories of living right across the street in 371 Vermont. Had my first crush here back in 1974.
Does anyone out there have the School #38 1925 photograph of 8th grade graduates of Miss Durney's class? Students' faces were arranged on one large photograph. Some of the names on the picture were: Mary Nevils, Mary Wright, Ruth Campy, Angeline Zabaldo. If you have this photograph, please contact me. I will be glad to pay the expense of having it copied, mailing cost, etc. My mother was Mary Nevils. I have written a book about her interesting life and would love to have this photo. At the time, she was 14-15 years old. Her parents could not afford the photo so she never owned one. She told me about it a year before she died. I am 76 years old and it would mean a great deal to me to have a copy of this photograph. Thomas C. Kelly
I used to live across the street in a vacant brick building. There was no running water, no electric and only body heat for three long cold winters. Really don't know how I survived. I don't remember the address, never got mail there, it was one in from the corner of 16th. It was the mid-90's. Just wondered what the building was like in the 60's and 70's. The West Side has been on a slide.

I attended K-6 and loved my teachers. The music teacher was terrific. I had a crush on Danny M, the crossing guard's son. Everyone knew...too funny!. I think I left in 1973 or 1974...can you tell me if there is a reunion for us? Or, how does this work as we only attended until 6 or 7th grade,I beleive.
I graduated from this school in 1961. Lived across the street. Great school, as it was new at the time. Moved out of the West side so I could attend Bennett. Oh well, I loved living on the West Side. I miss Buffalo very much, moved away in 1974. Thanks for this site Karl. It's wonderful to have this to visit in my old age.
