Mr. Curtin. Remington Rand did make M1911 45 caliber pistols during World War II. I saw and used one in the MP arms room while station in Atlanta, along with one of three Singer. A retired sergeant major here has three of the Remington Rand's in his collection. I also saw and used Remington Arms 45's in several locations around the world. According to the NRA, the Remington Rands were probably made in Syracuse and the location the 500 Singers were made isn't listed. I was hoping they were in New Haven territory, and specfically the Bridgeport / Wilson Point area this thread is about.

pnorkawich: Thank you for your kind comments on my layout. I tried very hard to capture the essence of the New Haven. Attached is a shot of an Alco on Seaview Ave. in Bridgeport. 0618 Seaview Ave  re-sized - Copy.jpg

Thanks for the pictures Mr. Abramson, these are just remarkable likenesses of Seaview Ave as I remember it. I spent many Sundays as a boy fishing at Pleasure Beach, my dad drove across the wooden bridge between the Seaview Ave and the 'island'. Thanks again.

If you ever get the chance to watch "The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds" on TCM or FXM, you'll get an occasional glimpse of the actual Seaview Avenue Railroad in action.  Part of the movie was done on Seaview Avenue, tracks in the street and all.

Thanks for the tip Mr. Statkowski!

Brother Henry:

Did you ever see "The Effect of McGinnis Rays on Pie in the Sky Profits"?

Movies about securities fraud really don't interest me.

Mr. Abramson. When I first read your post about the "The Effect of McGinnis Rays on Pie in the Sky Profits" movie, I thought you had your tongue in your  ¿😋? cheek while typing. When Mr. Statkowski said he didn't care for movies on securities fraud, I thought I had guessed wrong. So I did several types of 🕸web 🔎searches🔍 for the title and fragments of the title. I found a bunch of articles on physics, new planet systems, social economic impacts on urban governments, seeding the atmosphere with sulfer to offset greenhouse gases, and so many other topics to include the movie about the Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds. I couldn't fine anything on "The Effect of McGinnis Rays on Pie in the Sky Profits." Good one👍, I like your sense of 😆 humor. Thanks for an enjoyable and 🤔 knowledge filling two 🕞 hours.

Brother Rick,

ZOOM!  Right over Mr. Sullivan's head.

Mr. Sullivan,

You gotta keep on your toes on this forum.  You're either fast, or you're left behind.

Remember, tongue in cheek is better than foot in mouth.
