Todd and Jason, in driveway of 1405 College Ave., 1970I moved to Racine, Wisconsin in the summer of 1970 when I was six years old. We lived in a beautiful big white house on a brick street at 1405 College Avenue, and I lived there until I was eighteen years old. Hardly a day goes by when I don't think of Racine, even though I now live far away. For some reason, Racine has a huge amount of history for such a small place, and I've enjoyed collecting lots of different history books, pictures, and stories. Now I'm putting as much as I can on the web in hopes of meeting other Racine historians.

1974 picture taken on front porch of 1405 College Avenue. Back row: Terry Peterson (neighbor from across the street), unknown. Middle row: Chris Harris (my best elementary school friend), Jason Wallace (my brother) Front row: Wrye Martin, Todd Wallace, unknown.
I think we were supposed to be pretending that we were cold.
