We were raised at 10th & Topping.My 2 sisters and brother all went to McCoy grade school. All 4 of us, all 7 years. Our last name was White so we were known as the White girls.We were poor but so was everyone else
so we didn't know the difference.
We walked to school (no bus) . That 12th st hill was something else.In the winter we couldn't get home fast enough to get warm by that old coal stove in the living room.Open house was wonderful and brought back so many memories and so many school friends.Its so sad to think of McCoy being closed down. Everything looks so much smaller now than it did back 1940 thru 1949.
