Remembering childhood

The Home Forum page article "Being a Kid in the 1930s," Sept. 15, brought back memories. In 1932 I was six years old. We lived in back of the meat and grocery store my father ran in Buffalo. The walk-in meat cooler required ice until the late '30s. Most of our customers depended on welfare checks or money from family members working in the WPA or Civilian Conservation Corps. Welfare then meant no car, and I believe one couldn't even legally own a radio. Richard K. Kaminski, Mt. Lebanon, Pa.
