Better smelling Kool Aid and Nabisco than the smells of Visking sausage casings or Darling and Company's green tarp covered trucks. How about the smells of World's Finest Chocolates or the Vinegar mfgr on 51st and wood

Been a long time since I checked in but the massive building on the north west corner of 48th and Honore Was Not an apartment building. It was SCHOOL HALL and was owned by Sokol Town of Lake. After it was torn down about 1968 or so, four homes were built .Does anyone have pics ?

Anyone remember Uncle Mitch's on 61st and Pulaski ? It later became Vi Vi's. Mitch's goes back to the early 50's or late 40's, way before Little Eddies on 59th place and Pulaski.

Ron K as far as I know there was no Gerties in Brighten Park. There was however an Icecream shop on the corner of 51St Street and Damen Ave. named Gus's Icecream and soda parlor. Great hand dipped chocolates, Green River malts and shakes. and super hot fudge sundaes.

Richard, you are correct about Camp Kiwanis. Every Wednesday we had Campfire night and 7 Cheers to the Boy Scouts and they would answer back with 7 RAH RAH'S Back to us. Old School Hall was torn down in the late 60s or so but was on the NORTH WEST corner of 48 Th and its front door was on Honore.

Anyone out there remember a gymnasium on 48th and Honore (School Hall) which was the home of Sokol Town of Lake? Old pictures would be great. That Sokol also had a children's camp @ 103rd. and Willow Springs Road on Tuma Lake.I spent a few summers there.

The only Amphither near the stockyards that I remember was The Chicago Amphitheater, but it wasn't outdoor. It was used for many conventions and shows before the McCormic Place Exhibition Hall was built. The Chicago Auto show was held there every year up until the mid-late 60s.

bob1060 Do you remember Uncle Mitch's Diner @ 61st and Pulaski, or the old Funeral Parlor on the West side of Pulaski; there was a Bar in the front, I remember an old man fishing in the street while it was raining and Pulaski was being Widened. Had to be around 1961 or so. That kinda strayed from the Ice Cream Topic so I will add another The Light House On Ogden & First Ave. Best Custard Ever
