  • I was born and raised in Brockton and lived in a Swedish/Irish neighborhood. My fathers store is shown in the book and all of the places I knew as a child. Loved it.

  • thanks

  • Having grown up in the Campello area of Brockton way back when, I was so pleased to see pictures of my fathers package store, my uncles pharmacy and so many of the other places were visited. I remember going to Benson's Bakery and getting the fresh Swedish Rye bread and my favorite, Scorpa's. I was a bit young to go by myself so I had to wait for an adult to go with. We lived on Temple Street so were right arond the corner. spent many happy Saturday afternoons at the Keith Theater and went to the Keith School. Thank you Mr Benson. I really enjoyed the book.

  • My husband and his family are among the Swedes of Greater Brockton. It was wonderful to find this book as few are aware of the contribution and connection of Swedish folk to the Brockton area. I recommend it to any one with an interest in Brockton or the history of Swedes in Massachusetts
