When I was very small I remember going to Al Deppe's with my grandparents, they lived about 2 blocks away. That would be maybe '64 or '65. I also remember going to the drive-in with my family. It was long gone before I started dating, though so I never got to experience the nuances of drive-ins. Also where the landfill is (the old part on the north side of Richmond Ave.) my grandfather used to tell me about a boat he owned with my dad, they'd go out fishing and such as that. That would have been way back before WWII, though.
