    This feature means a lot to me: When my French Canadian ancestors came to the U.S., they all came through and lived in Lowell. In college, I studied American urban history, starting with the mill operatives of the 1830s and ending with the Jack Kerouac era. Thanks for the update!

    Lowell: Spiting its hard times…Thank You my parents & extended Polack family….t’was the Best of Places to have grown up, i.e. in the ’40s & ’50s! (with due respect to some Nuns or Brothers for many) and per e.g. learning of diversity through…ah…er…participating in ethnic ‘socialization’ after the Hi-Hat at record hops at the stinky…OK musky…gyms of Holy Trinity, the Immaculate, Keith Academy, etc. as rock and roll was being born one night with more dancing cheek-to-cheek at the Commodore [or even Totem Pole] to ebbing, but great Big Band music another night and sometimes at Drive-Ins or across from Glennies on The Boulevard or atop Fort Hill. (On a more academic note, I highly recommend Call the Darkness Light by Nancy Zaroulis who meticulously puts you on/in the streets/neighborhoods of today as they existed in times of those founding Mill Girls.)
