I remember my Mom and aunts always taled about him. You might check out the Polish Flat museum next to Rozga`s Funeral Home on 7th and Lincoln. The man that lives in the house west of that has lived there since he was a born. He`s in his late 80`s now, but he would remember him. His name is Gene.

          Does anybody out there remember TaTa Ryby (father fish.  Does anybody know anything about him besides he wore black, had a long beard, had a cigar and a baseball team named after him, was in parades on Lincoln Avenue, and would walk thru Kosciuszko Park a lot?   I am working with an anthropologist who wants to do a story and a play on him.  This guy was a Lincoln Ave, Kosciuszko park icon in the 40's and 50's.  Everybody in the Kosciuszko Park area remembers him,,but,,,no one knows his name, where he lived,worked, how he got the name Tata Ryby.  I have run dry on leads to follow.  Please help.   Tom Kondrakiewicz

I thought Franseca`s was right on KK and Oklahoma. Having a Oklahoma ave. address. I know there was a pizza place just north of Oklahoma on KK that started with a "P" in it`s name. An Italian name.

 I will take a stab at this. Was it a place called Francesa's? Or something similar.

 I used to live on Idaho and Nevada in the mid 80's for about 5 years. KK & Oklahoma were walking distance from my home. I seem to recall something like that before the pizza hut. I really liked that area back then. It was blue collar cool. I think some of the KK area is a little hipster doofus now if I am correct.

The 1962 City Directory shows 3133 as Muzzy's Tap. May have been part of the parcel that is now 3131?

Hi, a Pizza Hut is now at this address. But years ago (1970 and earlier), I recall the property held a big white stone building. Anyone know what it was? I heard it was a bowling alley.

Say it isn't so.  The rumor mill seems to think the site might go away, due to lack of financial support from the enthusiasts and users?  Something about web hosting fees to keep the site operational?  Any truth to this notion?   Angry
