Tina Beck-Shapiro

I remember the Dog Faced boy..my mother said his name was "JoJo" and he was indeed in a side show in Coney Island. Apparently, he did his laundry in the laundromat on CI Avenue. My brother, Robert E. Beck went to 217, and graduated in 1954. He went on to St. John's Univ and became a Pharmacist. Beginning at age 13 he worked as a delivery boy for Madenick's drugstore..(corner of CI and Foster). My brother was 13 1/2 years older than me and passed away at age 57 to cancer. I am wondering who recalls him? He was best friends with Eugene Cozza (who became a doctor) Herbie Weinberg, Ralph De Silva (spelling?) Sammy Basso (another doctor) It would be so wonderful to find people who remember him...most sincerely..Tina
