The West Side Gang and Allen at DeTurk Round Barn
In the West End’s heyday, there were a lot of Italian families and that meant lots of kids. Those “kids” known as the “West Side Gang” are still around. They are so fond of their West End childhoods and friendships that they still socialize and have events. They have also been very generous in sharing their stories and photos Allen Thomas. Allen has been collecting their oral histories, what he considers historic treasures to share with others.
