I lived nearby in the late 40’s after the war. How we loved that playground! We used to play there on summer afternoons. We played war among the debris left from the house that was there. My father would lean out the window and whistle for me to come in at dark.
That anecdote about your father leaning out of the window to whistle you in is just so familiar.
Some people yelled.
It’s part of the fabric of a neighborhood life kids today will never know.
All the best,
