Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0980009529, Paperback)On History's Front Steps features sixty photos, poetry derived from those photos and five concluding essays. It is an Irish American story that runs from my dad's 1930 decision to emigrate from Ireland to America. What happened next was unique in that he became the tercentennial mayor of his adopeted city, Northampton, Massachusetts, raised six children, founded and ran a number of automotive associated businesses and made a name for himself. He befriended his political ally John Fitzgerald Kennedy, was a delegate to the 1956 Democratic Convention in Chicago, and one of only two Irish born mayors in the United States. It is a story of struggle, brief triumph and the ups and downs of the Big Three as seen through the eyes of a small town dealership. It is a tale told by his eldest son who, along with his extended family, lived in the shadow of a driven man and were carried along in his wake.
