I used to play in the woods across from the brewery in the late forties, next to Jansens dairy, there was a large billboard advertising "Dolly Madison" ice cream on the corner of their lot. We hung out and flew free flight model planes "Phillips hobby shop"in 4 corners" in the field in the back. There was a fellow who then lived behind the old building and when his family moved away after they built the projects. There was an old blacksmith shop directly behind Rizzo's shoemakers and the Sunnyside Club that was apparently used to to service the coaches that made their way from the St George area to all points South, West and East.
I lived in a house next to the Manor Road overpass. It's now a playground for St Johns Lutheran school.
