Happy 11th Birthday to Priscilla
My cousins, the Gallo sisters
Children of Aunt Sue (Asunta Simonetti) and Uncle Joseph Gallo
My 11th birthday. All four of my Gallo cousins were there, including baby Delores at the very top, back row, left to right:: Josephine Gallo, Gloria in front of her and to her right, cousin "Sugar" (Beatrice) DePrisco, Priscilla Gallo, and then me, Priscilla Normandy.  I'm third from the right. Mom liked to braid my hair and she pinned the braids on top of my head with a big bow. She made all the party hats with crepe paper. Birthdays were wonderful because of Mom. She really got into decorating and making it fun. The other girls are my friends from the neighborhood. Far right is Anita Spinelli, left of her is her cousin Helene Ryan. I think the other two girls in the front may be Clotilda or Carmela, and Cookie on the left of her, but I'm not real sure. Anyone know?

Me and my cousins on Maujer St.
Some of my many cousins. I'm center front holding the flag. This was taken across the street from 181 Maujer Street. 
Bottom row: Gloria Gallo; Priscilla Gallo in First Communion dress; me; JoJo (Uncle Joe Gallo's sister Agnes' daughter).
Back row: cousin (is it Vincent or Pat?) Simonetti, my brother Michael (Buddy) Normandy, Louis DePrisco. Directly below Michael is (unknown), to her right is Anita (Uncle Joe Gallo's sister Rosie's daughter), far right, Josephine Gallo.
The Williamsburg Houses on the right was Kings County's first "slum-clearance" project which was a beautiful model for the times.

Now Playing: "Those Were the Days"

Those Were the Days

Boy, the way Glen Miller played
Songs that made the hit parade
Guys like us, we had it made
Those were the days

Didn't need no welfare state
Everybody pulled his weight
Gee, our old LaSalle ran great
Those were the days

And you knew who you were then
Girls were girls and men were men
Mister, we could use a man like Herbert Hoover again

People seemed to be content
Fifty dollars paid the rent
Freaks were in a circus tent
Those were the days

Take a little Sunday spin
Go to watch the Dodgers win
Have yourself a dandy day that cost you under a fin

Hair was short and skirts were long
Kate Smith really sold a song
I don't know just what went wrong
Those Were The Days

By Lee Adams and Charles Strouse
Theme from "All in the Family" TV series
