Hey, no problem. Great topic! I'll lay off my "alleys are anachronistic" screed if some one else wants to take this discussion off into another direction.

CuriousCat said:I am trying to gather old memories for a picture book about ALLEYS. Does anyone have time to share why alleys were originally made (they don't make them anymore in the new housing complexes); & some of the games that we used to play in the alleys & curbs by our homes; & any other memories that you or your parents have of alleys. God Bless Your Day! Thank you for even reading this!!!!!
While we were growing up in the 60's we used the alleys to meet friends, kiss, smoke & pass a beer around! It was amazing how many garages were left open at night! Remember any marble games? Remember any activities back there?!!!!
