‘Ten Cents a Copy!’

Dear Editor: I have some great memories of The Tablet back in the mid-1960s when I was attending St. Rose of Lima School, Parkville Ave., Brooklyn. Back then, the whole school had to attend Mass on Sunday at 9 a.m. Church was packed in those days.

After Mass in the lobby there was an older man with three or four kids. He would put them on all the exits and they would have a bundle of Tablets under their arms and they would chant: “Tablet, Tablet, Tablet! Ten cents a copy! Ten cents a copy!!!”
