East 8th was two way until the late '50s or early '60s from 18th Ave to Foster. I remember the shoe repair. There was a candy store across the street from St. Rose that was up on an island. I uses to get there before they opened and buy the four star Daily Mirror and leave four cents on top of the pile like everyone else. It was on the honor system. There were always pennies, nickels, dimes and sometimes quarters there. I always turned to the back pages first. In 1958 when I was nine, I couldn't understand why they would only show the first couple of innings of the Dodgers and Giants games sometimes. When I first started to play touch football, it was in the PS 217 schoolyard.
