16 Standish Street

16 Standish Street, Provincetown (2012), by David W. Dunlap.Patty Lisbon shares this lovely reminiscence in the comment below: “My parents, Joseph and Lillian Lisbon, along with my four brothers and sister lived in this house for many years. Growing up on Standish Street was the best as there were at least two to five children in every house on both Standish and Alden streets back in the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s. You never had to lock your doors and everyone always looked out for each other’s children. My parents’ doors were always open. We had many Christmas dinners with strangers at our dinner table because my parents felt no one should ever be alone on the holidays.” ¶ Updated 2014-02-19
