    I REMEMBER THIS ALARM VERTY WELL. IT WAS IN A NEWLEY DEVELOPED AREA CALLED, ROLLING WOOD.

    BECAUSE OF A FLASH FLOOD AND THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE NEW HOMES CAUSED THE FLOOD.

    THE MAN IN THE WHITE TURN OUT COAT IS CHIEF WILLIAM
    GRAESER.

    EX CHIEF CHARLES E. MARTIN
    BEDFORD, NH.

    Rollingwood, That is off 110 right? The house in the back round looks like my cousins house, they don’t live there now

    It’s 1 West Lyons Street, the house I grew up in, 1954 – 1971. My parents purchased it in 1953, and it was sold in1996.

      I knew that was a Rollingwood home the moment I saw it. I grew up in one on Tappen Drive. Suzy Doob, your father was our family dentist through the 50s. Nice to see you here !!
