JOHN AND BILL CHUCKMAN WITH TOMMY SEAGAL (SP?)- 51 ST STREET EAST OF 1311 E HYDE PARK BLVD - EARLY 1950s - THE WONDERFUL MRS BEAUX'S HOUSE IS IN BACKGROUND

TOMMY SIEGAL (SP?), A BOY FROM SWITZERLAND, WAS MY FRIEND IN HYDE PARK.TOMMY DOESN’T HAVE AN ICE CREAM CONE HERE BECAUSE THE PICTURE WAS TAKEN AS WE HAPPENED TO MEET HIM RETURNING HOME FROM BUYING THEM.THE HOUSE IN THE BACKGROUND – PART OF A SET OF WONDERFUL ROW HOUSES ON 51 ST STREET – BELONGED TO MRS. BEAU (SP?), A WONDERFUL OLDER LADY WHO USED TO PAY US AND MAKE US A CHARMING LUNCH IN HER BACKYARD IN RETURN FOR WASHING HER WINDOWS AND DOING OTHER LITTLE CHORES EVERY FEW WEEKS.

WE ALSO GOT TO PLAY WITH A STOREHOUSE OF OLD GAMES AND TOYS LEFT BY HER GROWN CHILDREN. SHE WAS THE SORT OF KINDLY DAME YOU USUALLY FIND ONLY IN FAIRY TALES, AND I WILL NEVER FORGET HER KINDNESS.
