Transcript ALMOST GONE-It took Sam Daidone over 50 years to collect all of the what-nots and odd trinkets that curious passersbys and serious collectors carted off in two days from his home at 2418 Cullen. Photos by Lara Schultz and Mark Lacy. offered a photo of Maxine Messinger complete with a very trendy bouffant "do." Daidone's house was crammed full of books and magazines on every subject and, seemingly from every age since Gutenburg sold his first press. A copy of Motortrend, resting between a small Eiffel Tower ashtray and an Avon boot, had survived in pristine condition since the days when Motortrend was 55 cents and Corvettes were $4,500. Nearby, as evidence that some things never change, was a moth- eaten textbook entitled An Introduction to Logic, which contained nau- seatingly precise truth tables. Another book, published by General Electric Refrigeration Company, claimed to explain "everything a modern homemaker must know," copyright 1929. There were as many buyers as gawkers present; as each odd armload of stuff passed Sara Jones en- route to the back porch, where a friend rang up sales, Jones seemed to struggle with conflicting emotions. "It's hard to sit and watch the place you lived all your life taken apart," she said. Then in the next breath, "I've got a new grandbaby, just born yesterday, I can't wait to get out of here and go see her." The stuff of Sam Daidone is dispersed. Much of it began a second or third or fourth life in the care of a kindred spirit. Perhaps a measure of the spirit that drove Daidone to collect what others created, lives on his newest granddaughter, Christine. -Michael A. Smith RED"ue4PE 51
