Overview

A delightful collection of 160 charming and nostalgic vignettes that paint a vivid portrait of a bygone Buffalo. George Kunz was a sentimental man who loved Buffalo history. The teacher of English and Latin took his children on "field trips" to the old Buffalo and Erie County Public Library before it was torn down, and on the Canadiana just days before the grand old boat was scrapped. When he retired from teaching, Kunz found a new career telling his stories on the editorial pages of The Buffalo News, occasionally in the Wall Street Journal, and in various nostalgic magazines. A born chronicler, he had a passionate and hilarious eye for detail. These lovely short stories are a "feast of charm and nostalgia for Buffalo area readers." (The Buffalo News)

Reading Mr. Kunz's charming columns describing times past in Western New York feels like a cozy chat with your favorite uncle. Buffalonians are rightfully proud of their history. What a perfect gift for the expat Western New Yorker!

Whether you are from the Buffalo, New York area or not, this collection of stories written by George Kunz, is a wonderful read. Each story tells of a memory from the depression, an event in history or a sentimental occurance that all can relate to in life. Though the book is intended for an adult audience, I read these stories to my children who are of pre-school age! My six-year old daughter is amused by learning about what life was like during the Depression Era or events that took place in my home town of Buffalo, NY.
