Everything changes...I grew up downtown on the peninsula in the area called Ansonborough.
The house is on Meeting at Society Street in the "Old" area where my boyhood friends and I were tenants.
Maybe one or two families owned their homes, but mainly, we all were renting back then in the 1950s.
My two brothers and I went to grade school at St. Joseph's around the corner on Anson Street, and then walked up to Broad and Queen Streets to attend Cathedral Grammar school.
We all three graduated from Bishop England high school - walking in the other direction - on Calhoun Street.
All of those schools are gone now.
The Anson Street building is still there but is no longer a school. The others have been torn down.
I passed my old house the other day at the corner of Meeting Street and apparently it's awaiting BAR approval of paint samples displayed on the front and sides.
It also is no longer 270 Meeting Street. The address has been changed to Society Street.
We seldom used the front door so I'm glad the back entrance is now officially recognized.
Even by the mailman..
