from the Thibaults

I worked at PI during the opening season in 1959 at the Hood gay 90's ice cream palor as a soda jerk. I grew up in Lynn but my familiy had moved to Woburn 2 years previously. I had just graduated from Malden Catholic that June of 1959 and started Harvard College as a freshman in September of 1959. I never had a chance to return after that summer and often wondered what happened to PI. It was a great summer not the lease of which were all the girls working at the Ice Cream parlor including one Peggy O'Brien from Reading that I had a crush on & dated. I am in the picture on your site showing the crew of the Ice Cream Parlour which was taken during the first couple weeks of the fromal opening. Later Paul E. Mawn
