My father was born in 1946--the flood tide of the boomers--and grew up just a few miles away. He would've loved to have been one of the interviewees for this video, in particular to rhapsodize about the Cyclone coaster. He still lives nearby but of course now there's just the memories & and what use does he have for Kelly's Roast Beef? <none>A reminder of everything that was lost here. This video is a real gut punch. It has probably been posted here before but I 100% recommend a watch if you haven't seen it already.
NOTE: if the video doesn't mention, Freddy "Boom Boom" Cannon grew up in Lynn--yet oddly, his hit song about amusement parks was not about Revere's!
