i'm the girl on the second row 3rd from the left my name is wilma cook. When I was looking at the picture some how I knew the guy you said was your father was named Charlie .I remember a few others but not a whole lot. I'm also in the other picture 2nd row in the middle with the bandana around my neck. I  also remember Robert Costillo ,they might remember my brother Robert Cook , he was a grade under us.


I am so happy that you came across these photos!  I just spoke to my dad and he said he remembers you as well.  If you would like his email address let me know and I will send it to you.  


Funny story.....so my dad and Robert were in elementary school together.  Many years later (around 1973) we moved from North Retta to Wesley Street.  As we were moving in, the next door neighbor approaches my dad and says, "I know you...aren't you Charlie?".  It was Robert Castillo.  We had unknowingly moved next door to someone that he had gone to elementary school with.  They are still neighbors today.

I was shocked to see your old photo's . I am in those photo's .I grew up in the Ripley Arnold project and went to Peter Smith From 1st to 6th. Would love to connect with some old friends from there.

I believe that my dad lived on 2nd street across from the school back then.  In the first photo he is wearing a patrol belt and is standing directly in front of the teacher.  His name is Charlie and he lives in Riverside.  Also I know that on the first now, 5th photo, is Robert Castillo.  He lives next door to my dad in Riverside.  Pretty sure that Robert's sister Rachel is also in the photos but I'm not sure exactly which one is her. 


Which child are you in the photos?
