BFA: A token look 80 Ashley Street

(click on images for full view)

Back in 1981, I had my 8th grade dinner with the rest of my graduating class from Saint John Kanty School at 80 Ashley Street.

Last week, Corpus Christi friend Andy Golebiowski sent me a link to an E-Bay auction for a 5 cent token from M. V. Pajakowski’s gin mill at 80 Ashley Street…of course I had to buy it and I did.

It never ceases to amaze me in a sad sort of way how quickly the neighborhood deteriorated.  Buildings like Pajakowski’s are lost causes…what a shame and how very sad that each and every day buildings like this move closer to meeting the wrecking ball all over Buffalo.
