This is The Northgate Shopping center on Thomas Street In the 1950's. My friend was picking up her Grandmother from Work at 3 Sisters. She shared these with us on face book! I just loved seeing them! There was a Gridiron at the corner too! We thought you would get a kick out of seeing the old Pictures!!
We are on our way to early vote in Millington!

This a pic of the Plastic sticks under the Buried Treasure, the most poplar one sold when I was a kid in the mid 1960's. It was Vanilla and raspberry Ice cream sold by the Merry Mobile. I sent you a picture of the Merry Mobile awhile back and I heard another listener call in about it.
This the largest collection I have ever seen before, every once in a while you will see them at antique stores and flea markets.
Also thought you would love the pic of the record player!

My Grandparents and Parents use to go here, they had a Bubble Gum machine inside and we always got a Penny to get a piece of gum while they pumped gas! I remember the pump saying 15 cents a gallon! Also the owner raced at the stock car races. I will have to talk to my friend( her dad owned it) and get more info, this station was on Overton crossing near N. Watkins
