i am working on family history & stories of my husband as he was growing up. He was born in 1939, in the car, on the way to St. Vincent Hosp, Green Bay, from the farm in Krakow. I have a photo of a Dr. Brusky in front of his bldg which was torn down in the construction of the Walnut Street Bridge. Are there any other facts? Does it say anywhere which bldgs were torn down? names of owners? Which Dr Brusky, there were two, Dr Alvin & DR Eugene, with Alvin being the older.

Would appreciate any suggestions as I continue to research that little piece of history. What was really significant was that Dr. Eugene Brusky later became the team physician for the Green Bay Packers.

Thanks, Bonnie
