Joe Gatrell's Blue
Island Facebook Fables

Stories of Blue Island in the Twentieth Century have long been covered by dust and lost in time, but recently a Blue Islander set out to uncover and reveal that which was forgotten. Joe Gatrell has been posting excerpts from his new book "JUST THE WAY THINGS WERE DONE, A POLITICAL HISTORY OF BLUE ISLAND: Volume One, 1920 to 1965." on Facebook. In an attempt to help preserve these stories against future loss, I am archiving them here as they appeared on Facebook. Thanks Joe.
