HOME JUICE COMPANY was the largest home delivery of noncarbonated juices inluding the best Green Lime flavored juice ever. I used to pour it into popsicle maker for a super frozen treat.It came in 1/2 gal bottles with small glass handle up near the top of the bottles. Vanna had home delivery and I think Filbert's Rootbeer did too.

The Knife sharener's cart was a marvel to see. It was like a transformer, it opened up to a bicycle type seat, you cranked the pedals, and it turned the big grinding wheel, a small metal can with a shut off valve dripped water on the huge wet stone while it spun around, sparking and screeching.

The Dr. Who Owned Von Solbrig lived in a home at the corner of South 64th St and Keeler.

Emptying trash one moment and the next transporting unconcious patients without even washing up. No wonder it closed
