Back in the 50s and most of the 60s most of my family and relatives all lived in the same city! My Grandmother, my Aunts, Uncles, and my cousins only my one Aunt, Uncle, and my cousin, lived in a city near by. My other Grandmother and Grandfather lived in a town not far from where we lived at the time. One Aunt, Uncle, and my six cousins lived in the building right next to us in the 50’s
And all the relatives were in walking distance from each other so it was easy to pay a visit, at times the relatives another moved around some but it was always in the same town.
It always seemed like we would always live in the same town back then, but when you’re young you don’t see that far ahead and take it for granted. And moving to a different neighborhood at times was hard because depending on the school district you had to get adjusted to different Teachers, new kids, but I’m sure it’s the same today. But most of the time my family was in the same district in the 50’s and early 60’s so it wasn’t that bad.
Over the years most of the relatives moved out for town to other citys and although we stayed in touch here and there it was never the same. If I could go back for a day, I would love like to travel back to those Yesterday’s just to visit once more with my relatives and to hang out with my cousins, yea just one more Yesterday!
That sounds so nice, everyone together like that in one city or nearby. People didn’t move as much back then. Big East Coast families always lived very close to each other. At one time, my relatives all lived together too, but my Dad moved us out to CA and that was very isolating. Great post as always about better times. 🙂
