The Corner of Hickory and Third One Mans memories By Lawrence Meloling Soft Cover 1967  31 Pages
I was born and grew up in the sleepy little village of Liverpool. My father was born and died there. And his father before him. And even my great-grandfather lived most of his life and died there.
From my youth. I remember well the tree-shaded streets, the lilacs and the tulips and the wide expanses of green, green grass. And every thirty minutes, the trolley car from Syracuse arrived, tarried a moment, and then departed. Our most important thread to connect us with the rest of the world. The Liverpool of those days is now long gone. The beautiful elms have been decimated with disease. The garish, neon nightmare of Route 57 slashes through the present village with a wide expanse of concrete carrying the horsepower and hotrods of the auto age. The Thruway forms a noisy chinese wall across the north edge of the town. And of the people I knew and grew up with, far too many are now sleeping out eternity on Tulip Street hill.
The Liverpool of my time was the era after salt, during basket-making, and before electronics. The Nowaks and the Gettmans and the Wiegands working the willows in their back-yard shops, the coal yard of Honas Miller, and M. & A. Heid's General Store. Pete Prouty meeting the mail train with his two-wheeled pushcart, and Doc Platner, Dinny Wurtzburger, and my father playing cards in the evening in the Masonic Temple. It's all gone now, just as that little boy of so long ago who was fascinated by the trolley cars.
This little book is about a few events in the life of that boy and of the life-long hobby into which these events have grown. It's nothing spectacular, nothing from the seamy side of life, just a small vignette lifted intact from one man's memory.
