What It Was Like to Live in War Torn Greece in the 1930s & '40s.



Minas Dascalakis, owner of downtown
Greensboro's venerable Matthew's Grill at 223 North Elm Street near the original O'Henry Hotel. Matthew's was a hub for city  leaders, the movers and shakers.

In this portion of my interview Minas talks about childhood in a war torn Greece and immigrating to America. (The focus will be on Downtown Greensboro in its heyday in future videos.)
Also heard is Aleck Alexiou, his father owned the Princess Cafe on South Elm. Downtown Greensboro in the 1950s was his backyard growing up.
