Thank you for the excellent article; I look forward to the next installment. Having grown up in the Salzburg area many years ago it brought back vivid memories of steam engines and the west side depots, men walking home from work after the plant whistle blew, the 24/7 fires burning at the middlegrounds dump ... and did you know that back in our day a true "mixed marriage" was that of a west sider and an east sider? The old folks told us that those marriages seldom lasted ...

An excellent article of the history of West Bay City. I was born in the village of Salzburg 88 years ago and currently live on Wenona Street. My entire family have lived in the Salzburg area for more than 150 years. I look forward to more articles regarding the history of West Bay City. Thank you Dave.

My father, John Volk, had a grocery store on the corner of Henry and South Union. It was called Johnny's Food Shop. I worked there when I was a kid. The building is still there on the corner. I think of dad every time I drive by. I grew up in the Banks area by Trombley School and attended Visitation School.

Too bad you never really learned how to use those rackets, Dave.
