The West End was also featured in a recent Press Democrat article- it is an interesting look at the neighborhood.

Press Democrat- The West End Comes Full Circle  A recent article about West End History, neighbors and businesses. FYI- the boundaries stated for the West End were incorrect. (West End Neighborhood Map) and the well known and loved barber was Fred Callori (not Albert). But hey… it is alot of  information for the writer to cover… so mistakes happen.
