Hudson (St) Recreation Tavern owner-to-nephew 1942 PC
« on: January 10, 2017, 05:05:06 PM »
I'm guessing at the relationship in the title. The main owner is "J.Ostrowski", the writer is "Uncle John", the nephew is "J. Ostrowski" (called "Chiz" by Uncle John). Of course, the nephew - an Army private in WWII-ravaged Wyoming - could be the owner, but he'd be kind of an old private because the other owner would be his son, according to the card, making "Uncle John" way older.

Not sure if any relation, but Edward Ostrowski was one of the original Housing Authority members:

I think that if Mr. Editor could reach out to former Mayor Kaz Wysocki whose business is across the Street at PMC , he or members of the family can give you all the details.

Great find....I don't know if this pertains, but when I was a kid attending Immaculate Conception School two nights a week I worked bingo. One of the elderly ladies that was a regular there was a kindly woman named Nellie Ostrowski, who lived on Shafer Place...which was right there off Hudson. She never mentioned a bar, but probably was related to that family. This was late 70's, and she was close to 80 years old then.
