Message:  My whole neighborhood has wells on the lots. This in the 1880's through 1940 was called Little Italy with all the people moving into the area where other Italians had settled. They used their wells to help produce wine. 1/2 block away was a brewery that closed in the depression. The aroma of winemaking and beer brewing in September would almost get you drunk just from sniffing. Now we have Asians, old folks, young folks, Filipino, Hispanics but no winemaking. You used to walk down the street and taste the wines and beer. Alas, no more,
