The Gaylor's -5011 Kingsley 1st floor on right

Since I was born 12/26/1961 and resided at 5011 Kingsley 1st floor and my father Alva G Gaylor working at GM , and wife Alice Gaylor working at Commercial Union downtown Cinti, at Carew tower & the 580 building later in her career, my memories are from 1st grade which would of been around 1965-66. The area as I grew up were of areas described earlier in pages 1-3 . I also remember at age 8,9 there being a large pool to the left of Kingsley Dr. and a wooded area where young boys would run and play in the hilly areas and ravines as mentioned. I also remember the era of Interstate I-71 and watching it being built in the 1960's near 1970. We left the area around 1972 to move into the Norwood area nearer to GM . In the 1963-4 to 1970 era the Eastwood /Stratford Manor duplexes had begun to turn toward a crime riddled and scary time to live in . We were moved after declining safety was felt and we had several scary incidents also that led to us to decide to move. But in the earlier era as mentioned there were many fun memories as a childhood boy running the woods and exploring, swinging from roped or cable swings across gorges and ravines that led to a pond across what now is Interstate I-71. And of the swimming pool of course as it was a yearly summer fun enjoyment which became a daily routine for a child to look forward to during summer break. We ended up moving to 5924 Carthage Court in a brick Terra Cotta roofed large home belonging to a man from West Chester that owned a large sod farm near Maud Ohio . There were many good times and many good memories of the store nearby in the community along with the pool and the wooded area surrounding the Manor. Daniel Drake Park north and nearby also to go in winter to slide the hills in snow by sled or whatever means possible at the time, be it a plastic lid or cardboard. There were times of visiting the old Nearby Cemetary and as a child it was interesting reading of the age of those born there and when. Wondering their what their influence was on the area and things they may of seen and did as survivors of the area. Probably owners and residents as usual of the nearby area. There was also a pond across the road on the south side of Duck Creek road that me my brother Jeff would go to see turtles and such. The memories of nearby Madison Drive in movie Theatre also are still fresh in my memory as even a young child living and growing up in that era. As with many areas, crime and lack of upkeep left the Manor in a declining mode of needed repair. And crime increased and our safety felt there declined also as time went by.
Enjoyed reading the information and re-living the memories in this collection of others memories .

That was cool to read. Sounds like the building you lived in was fairly close to the one we lived in. Our address was 5049 Kingsley. We moved out of the Manor in 1959. It's unfortunate that the place went downhill. Fortunately, my own personal memories of the place was that it was one of the most unique places to live where people really were good neighbors and friends to have and know during the time we lived there. I'll always remember the people I knew and the times I had living there. I wish I knew how they are and what they're doing now.

Just curious, but how did you happen to find this thread?

Default Eastwood elementary


ran across this forum while searching for an old newspaper article concerning me in the 60's

had no idea it existed!! wow, bringing back some good memories

i grew up in stratford manor , at the end of strathmore , near the woods (my playground)

started 1st grade there in 1962,
moved to sharonville in '68 where i started 6th grade

my 5th grade science/gym teacher's name was Mr. Shadd (Roland )
to my surprise, later on, he was my teacher again, at princeton high school , class of '74

i can vividly remember mrs. mcartney, principal of eastwood , and mrs. sloan, my 2nd grade teacher.

november 22, '63, mrs mcartney tapps on the glass in the door, motions for mrs sloan to come out to hallway
she came back in the room in tears and told the class about JFK .

over the years i have ran across a few "stratfordians"

i still have not located the newspaper article though

Hi Brent. Good memories indeed. Some articles going back to the esrly 60's might be a little hard to find online, although the newspaper probably has it archived. Was it in the Cincinnati Enquirer?
