    1. Is that where Cabbage Patch Kids come from? lol. I like that name Cabbagetown. I wonder if the Irish appreciated it. Cabbage is quite good fried up in butter or bacon fat with potatoes 🙂

        Babyland General Hospital in Cleveland, Georgia. From a little farther north. Cabbagetown was all poor Irish in Atlanta. The former grocery store owner in my book had been Irish, but the black man who took over the store kept the name.

      2. That’s the thing about the Irish–they don’t stay poor for long (or they didn’t in the 19th century).
