Granite, Grit, and Grace – An Exploration of the Fascinating Side Streets of Fall River’s History
by William A. Moniz
Granite, Grit, and Grace – An Exploration of the Fascinating Side Streets of Fall River’s History is a collection of seventy-two articles written by Bill Moniz during his tenure as a reporter for the now-defunct Fall River Spirit, a weekly newspaper.
With topics ranging from Fall River in its earliest days to the twenty-first century, covering historical subjects as well as human interest stories, Bill’s articles bring the city then and now to life. Whether it be the story of the Battle of Fall River, the granite industry, reminiscences of downtown, or North and South Park, among others, readers are certain to find much to pique their interest and stir memories of “the good old days.” The articles are accompanied by nearly three hundred black-and-white illustrations, many previously unpublished.
