The East End Community

We need to acknowledge the contribution of Mary Pharo Meldon in making this project possible. Not only had she saved copies of The Blue Room Belch, but she had preserved pictures of many of those mentioned in the paper. Some of her pictures, although not directly related to the stories in The Belch, were just too precious not to include. Enjoy.

In no particular order --Edgar Pharo, Arthur Pharo, Stanley Pharo, Matt McMorrow (piano player), Emma Pharo McMorrow, Stanley Pharo, and Aloysius Pharo

The predecessor to Pharo's Cafe -- Chris Pharo's Place. Note the water trough in the foreground for the horses.
