Volume 2 contains an essay "A View of Things Past: Community Life Along 115th Street" by Paul Petraitis. Each volume is soft cover and 100+ pages. Included in this record is some miscellaneous correspondence, newspaper clippings, and a 7-page list of many of the fraternal, church groups, clubs, etc. that existed in Roseland showing the year each was founded. Full record available for viewing at the Bertha Ludlum Reading Room in the Hotel Florence.
