This is very interesting to me as the referenced artical published in the Somerville Journal on May 4, 1928 is the very day that I was born in the Sunnyside Hospital. I have never visited my birthplace but this could materialize in the near future for nostalgic purposes only. Shortly after this time frame, the nation experianced the great depression and most births took place in people's homes due to monetary considerations, where my only sibling was born on May 28, 1932.

I just read an article written by Julia C. Reischel regarding the Sunnyside Hospital. The piece referenced an article written on May 4, 1928, which is the exact date that I was born in The Sunnyside Hospital and the physician was a Doctor Weeks. I would be interested in knowing more about Winter Hill and Doctor Weeks and his immediate family and if there is a dovetail to today's news. This was 83 years ago but it certainly has some interest to me and maybe others born at that time. Ken Lewis
