Today we met former mayors, a large number of Demorcrats and a single Republican. There were shop keepers, plumbers, and real estate agents. There were clergy and liquor dealers (a lot of them). They were the Irish at the turn of the century. They comprised almost half the population of Lowell and let it be known. Telling their stories reminds us of the struggles of the previous generation. We are honored to share their lives and preserve them for the next.
