This transcription of the articles in The Blue Room Belch is dedicated to the men and women who lived and worked in the East End Neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio during World War II. The articles reflect the sense of community and the sense of humor of those who frequented Pharo's Cafe. Listed below are the names referenced in the book. I took the liberty of adding the names of my father and two brothers, Johnny, "Bud" and Bob Jones who lived in the same block as Pharo's Cafe and served in World War II. Apparently my grandfather, Fred, did not join his neighbors at Pharo's.
Many of the names are familiar to me. I'm told my Uncle Bob worked for Joe "Wimpy" Fischer at his grocery. Bob Kroner was my Dad's best friend and was responsible for my Mom and Dad meeting each other. I hope you enjoyed their stories as much as I did.
