0 Reviews
Lifelong resident and columnist John Galluzzo, recalls those days of splendor on the Nantasket shore as well as some of the forgotten episodes of local history that took place in many of Hull's proud neighborhoods, from Waveland to Allerton to the Village and beyond. Transient faces both famous and infamous have left their mark on the community, all the while respecting the presence of prominent families that have claimed Hull as their own since the early 1600s.
