You will enjoy the memories of growing up in the fifties! Linda Colvin Funk has written down 40 years of stories about Topeka, Kansas and farming near Nortonville, Kansas into one book. Some of her work has been published in Washburn’s “Inscape,” The “Kansas City Star Magazine,” and Reminisce and “Reminisce Extra.” Inside, among other photos, you’ll see their personal photos of Topeka and farming, Clay Street, the ’51 flood, and selling vegetables on the curb. The names and subjects of interest are: the Santa Fe railroad strike, Hayden High School, Holy Name Catholic Church, Mrs. Konrade, Mr. Walker and Jimmy and Tammy Miller of Charleston, South Carolina. I enjoyed my own memories of childhood for the few years I lived in Topeka as I read her book. It is bound well for many generations to understand Topeka in the fifties from the eyes of a child now grown. I bought one and will keep it for a long time! Five stars for the writing and the memories!
