My grandfather would always take my mother shopping once a week, we would go to High Low in the 2600 block of N. Harlem, and then up to CMA, in the 4700 block of N. Harlem. Between the two stores, we would either stop at Mrs. Murphy's Hamburgers, on the east side of Harlem just north of Montrose, where Rex Italian Foods now sits, or at Henry's Hamburgers, on Harlem south of Cornelia. There are apartment buildings there now, but for years the old Henry's was owned by an older guy who made it a slot car track, and later some kind of resale store. He was kind of a strange guy, and never really wanted to sell you anything. I believe he passed away, and the old Henry's was torn down and the apartments built.
