KIRKUS REVIEW

In picture book format, specifics on life in Boston's North End in the 1920s. When Grandmother Kate was a girl, she lived in a Pullman apartment, had multi-ethnic neighbors, went to the movies on Saturday, for a ride on Sunday, and could watch prices drop by the hour at local pushcarts. And there was a big to-do in the house when her mother insisted on voting because a few years before ""American women had been given the right to vote.
