In a cover letter, the Dabbah family of Switzerland tells the BRA: Read more.

Remembering George

Part of an impromptu memorial that included a remembrance and flowers.

He was one of those people most of us never paid much attention to. But to the people who regularly walked Tremont Street in front of the Granary Burying Ground, George was a friend, always quick with a "good morning" or "good night."

George Dagraca, 43, died this past Thursday. Somebody set up a memorial for him where he used to sit, along the burying-ground fence. Read more.

At the corner of Stuart Street and Tremont Street, in 2013 there was a Panera's Bread which could still be there today, 2016.

In the 1970s to the early 1980s, there was a barroom/strip joint which was part of the Combat Zone at Stuart and Tremont Street. It was a unique location in the Combat Zone as it was some 2 blocks away from the main area of what was called the Combat Zone. I am trying to recall the name of this the Combat Zone barroom.
Long time memory versus short time memory is funny as you get older. I can not recall all of what i did yesterday, but i have a video memory of what that Stuart/Tremont Street barroom in the 70s looked like inside like it was this morning i went in. There was also a barroom on the second floor but they did not advertise on the outside. But i can not recall the name of the business.
