growing up on the eastside of town in Little Flower Catholic parish. (I just found and joined this forum, so please forgive me if I repeat anything previously discussed. ) I remember Haag's drugstore, Hook's drugstore, Walt's grocery store, Preston's grocery store, Shi-Kay Lounge, McCord's drugstore, Lindner's ice cream, Laughner's cafeteria, MCL cafeteria, Burger Chef, Emerson Theater, Arlington Theater, Guidone's grocery, Eastgate Mall, Irvington Plaza (Carrico's furniture, Shopper's Fair where my Dad worked part-time every Christmas season, a huge drugstore whose name I can't remember, a bowling alley south of Shopper's Fair, and, I think, the S & H green stamp redemption center was near there if not actually in Irvington Plaza), the Ground Round, Al Green's drive-in ("Ptomaine Palace"), the Eastgate YMCA, Miramar Swim Club, Paramount Music Palace. Ahhhh, such warm memories!

I'm getting in on this late, but I attended PS# 77 from the fall of of 1972 until Dec. of 1976. Mrs. Donahue was the Kindergarten teacher. We used to see her at mass at Our Lady of Lourdes. Did you know her husband disappeared under suspicious circumstances and was never found . . . She was a very nice lady.

There was Cowboy Bob, Popeye and Janie (renamed Janie's Place?) and Debbie's World for cartoon shows . . . Our brownie troop from IPS #77 was part of the audience for the latter two.

What about the Tee Pee over at the State Fair? My dad who is almost 90 loved that place.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed and allowed me a very pleasant trip down memory lane.

Does anyone happen to have any old pictures/video footage of any of these places, i.e. The Pole, TeePee, Westlake Drive-In, etc?

Oh thank you for the memories... I lived on the east side from 1965-1974 but continued to visit after moving to Greenfield. Nana lived on Woodside, just east of Shadeland and Washington Streets. We were members of the "Y" which is funny b/c before we were old enough to go alone, she had to take us and she didn't swim! Farrell's and Tiffany's Bakery (I worked there in high school) at Washington Square, Chi Chi's next to what was Paramount Music Palace), Arlington Theatre (where I saw The Sound of Music), Irvington United Methodist Church, Godfather's Pizza (TACO PIZZA!), 4H, shopping with Nana at "The Fort," Shadeland and National Drive-Ins, the TeePee restaurant, the orange pumpkin at Ellenburger Park!

The orange pumpkin CARRIAGE at Ellenberger . . . and that was the best sledding hill around, too. Also the Hart Bakery on 10th's Street. Sammy Terry owned the music store across from St. Lawrence Church on the corner of Shadeland and 46th Street. Took violin lessons there for many years. Went to preschool (or nursery school as it was known as back in the day) at the Irvington United Methodist Church. Did anyone else have Mrs. Nelson and/or Mrs. Anderson (ironic, as I am now Mrs. Anderson) for 1st or 2nd grade at School 77? Perhaps Mrs. McCray or Mrs. Williams for 3rd or 4th? Who could forget Mr. Starkey, the art teacher. I was SCARED TO DEATH of him. My mom ran into him years later and told him of my intense fear of him. He was mortified he had scared me so much. This is a great thread!

There is an East Side Indy Nostagia Facebook group you can join if you have a Facebook account. Not sure if you have to be a member to check out the photos or not. The photos are great. The old Washington Sq. Mall photos bring back a lot of memories for me.

Another 77 alumna!!! I mentioned upthread that I attended 77 for 5th grade and the beginning of 6th. We also attended Irvington UMC during that time (mid-60's), and I spent many hours skating at Ellenberger.

I attended preschool at a place called "Miss Cook's Kindergarten" -- anyone ever hear of it? I have no idea now where it was located.

Oh, wow. How could I not have mentioned Ellenberger Park? For a year or so back in the 1960s, I used to live five or so houses west from there on East Walnut Street. And, I didn't mention Harold's Steer-In restaurant on East Tenth Street near North Emerson Avenue. I was fortunate enough to eat there while I was visiting Indy again a year or so before they went out of business. PS #77 sounds so familiar. Where is/was that? I went to kindergarten at PS #62 (Calvin Kendall) near East 10th Street and North Wallace Avenue (Street?), but I understand it no longer exists. I went to "nursery school" at Chicken Little Nursery School. I don't remember where it is/was located, but the name has stuck with me for more years than I care to admit. Hahaha!!!
