Reminisce about Berwyn / Re: BerwynTalk Demise?
« Last post by Ted on December 07, 2020, 08:24:41 AM »
Everyone has moved over to Facebook.  That is the main reason no one posts on Berwyn Talk any more

And FB has gone out of its way to repel its users. If reminded, some might come back, but they'd have to remember their username and password. Given the dust and cobwebs, it'd take a concerted effort to jumpstart a re-opening.
 

Someone tried this on FB about a year ago (getting people to go to Berwyntalkforum).  It went no where.

What led to this board's apparent demise? I myself started very numerous "reminisces" as you can see looking way back.

Tonight out of curiosity I searched "Shotola Market", where my mother bought a lot of our meats, between Harvey and Highland on Cermak, west of Stloukal Hardware. There was also a little drugstore, early on, I think. Jewel, of course, was to the East. Whatever happened to Modernage? Figatner Scott & Co.?

Born on Harvey Ave., lived there 30 years, same house. Drove the neighbors nuts!

Berwynson, there are two Facebook groups where people do reminisce about Berwyn.  If you are on Facebook and want to talk about Berwyn in the old days, you might want to check them out:

A group called "I'm so Berwyn":

Berwyn Senator passed away??  Oh man, I didn't know that. 

I miss hearing about what's happening from this board, but I can't bring myself to join the Facebook sewer just to see what people are posting there.

Sorry to hear about your health problems Berwynson.

Hard to believe it's been 5 months or more since I posted this. Still alive, barely kickin'. How I would like to see that old bungalow one more time......just searched obit for our neighbor, Ray Kozak, lived on Harvey, died at 95, no date though.

Many of the good folks are gone. I am 78+, not one of the good ones......

 I looked up George Krejci on Google.  It looks like he contributed a lot of photos and slide shows to Morton West.

I am certain Berwyn Senator's death was a loss for his family and friends. But this site was a terrible place for him. He was oblivious to the bigotry and ignorance he kept spewing, and responded to those who rationally disagreed with him with insults. The best way to pay tribute to him on Berwyn Talk is to use him as an example of how not to conduct oneself here.

Since the above contribution, two years ago, many changes have occurred, including:

Berwyn Senator is dead. George Krejci is dead. The others I am unaware of. Charlie, who was born 5 days after I was, is up and about in Chicago, but with various health issues.

And me: kidneys quit working 6 months ago, diagnosis "Undefined Medical Condition": I should have known! Dialysis 3 times weekly, living a newly-controlled existence. I don't like it.
