Photo: The Site of Tony DeMarco's Living Room
Here is a coincidence. When Dave and I were in Boston this past 4th of July week, we several times walked by a bronze statue of Tony DeMarco at the entrance to the old North End district with lots of Italian restaurants, and the Old North Church of Paul Revere fame. That is the neighborhood where Tony DeMarco grew up.
I am not a boxing fan, but I am glad to see these tributes to someone who was a champion in the 1950's. According to Wikipedia, Tony DeMarco is now in his 80's.
I wish this building was still a piano bar instead of a U-Haul dealership.
On the subject of boxing, it is a coincidence that Partadise Valley, the small suburb between Phoenix and Scottsdale where we live, is also home to both Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson.
This week we have photos of the Wadi Rum Desert of Jordan posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
