Fabian (Fab) Kuchin (b. January 20, 1907 in Roslyn, Washington) talks about his life in Roslyn. He explains how his father, Stephen Kuchin, worked in the local coal mines until he had an accident and left mining for grocer's work. He took ownership of Pioneer Grocery Store. When Fabian Kuchin returned to Roslyn in 1928 after completing some college work, he assisted with the family business. Fabian Kuchin married Rosella Kuchin and the two ran the grocery together for some years.

The cover image shows Roslyn, circa 1940. The photograph was taken from the intersection of First Street and Pennsylvania Avenue. Many of the businesses that lined the east side of Pennsylvania Avenue can be seen. On the left in the foreground is the Brick Saloon, which was managed by W. Sullivan. The next business is the Pioneer Grocery Store, which was owned by Stephen Kuchin. The Panerio and Ramsay Barber Shops also appear on this side of the street.
