A retired gangster from the 50's says: The Gaylords started around 1952 at Huron and Throop outside a corner tavern. In the 60's, they had a clubhouse at Ohio and Noble, and also hung out at Grand and Ogden at LaRoccs Hot Dog Stand. They had control of the whole area. There are rumors that the Gaylords started in the 40's as a baseball club, then one of their players got beat up bad. That was the birth of the Gaylord street gang. It was all survival back then.
