An accordion book with flaps, A Street Called Home opens on the tumultuous life of Mount Vernon Avenue. Look inside the figure flaps to learn about the Ragman, the Iceman, the Brownyskin Man, and all the others. It's the 1940s. It's Columbus, Ohio. It's a street called home...
"A self-sufficient street, it knew how to survive. People wove in and out with their horses and cards and trucks; you could hear the street cries; people bartered and bought and sold; people played and danced. Everything you could need you could find on Mount Vernon Avenue - a street called home."
