My parents married Dec 1945 and shortly after, moved to Cliffside. I was born in 1947 at the Shelby hospital. My dad told me of driving a bus, working as a pin setter in a bowling alley, and working in the Cone Mill . He also mentioned an ice house being there. We moved away sometime before I entered school. I visited The mill area in the mid 1990's and stopped by the Shelby hospital . I was shown where the old medical center was when I was born. I ordered a couple copies of the book, "Cliffside: Portrait of a Carolina Mill Town (NC)". I will give one to my parents ;I'm sure they will enjoy reading it and seeing the pictures. Thank you for all your efforts on this website.
