I well remember Leonhardt's restaurant - and the sisters that owned it. I remember Millie and Rose but can't think of the names of the others. At least once a week it seems our parents drove us across town to have dinner there. It was a long drive but worth it. Even though everything they served was great, we always got the fried chicken and biscuits, and cherry pie for dessert. Best ever! Your aunts were wonderful cooks. Would love to have some of the old recipes!

Hi, can anyone remember a restaurant around maybe West Pages and Dixie Highway area where you went in and sat down, but to order your food on a telephone? I was maybe 5 yrs old and I am not too clear on it, but i do remember every booth having a phone. Seems the restaurant was dark, and red lighting maybe inside?

Also there was a hardware store next to the Sylvester's/Nine mile place that had a swingset out front on the store for sale. My dad would take me and my siblings for a ride "to get us out of my mom's hair", we would stop and swing on the swingset for a bit, then beg my dad to do the "loopity loop" (which meant speeding down St Anthony's Church road to hit all the bumps). We would all be flying up out of our seats and our heads would hit the inside of my Dad's gray Rambler.

My dad would take us then to Ehler's. Oh how those days I miss. My dad and us kids would then ride pass Haywood's and hold our nose and say pu-weee! we always said Haywood's had rotten milk, as one time we got a hold of some old milk. We never went back to Haywood's.

I lived on Seaforth and West pages. I was 8 the first time I rode my bike with my cousin to McDonald's on Dixie. I thought I was GROWN! lol ( No way would I let my kids do that, I guess my mom didn't know!

Anyone remember the Pop Shoppe? It was next to the T G & Y on Terry and West pages. me and my sister went there a lot. You could go in and pick any flavor bottled drink. The bottles of course were returnable.

There was an ice cream place built seperately from the rest of that shopping center. It was an igloo building, I think the ice cream place had "Igloo" in its name. I had dreams of working there! (I was 5 or so!)
In that same shopping center was Taylor Drugs, Long John Silvers, Winn Dixie, A Jack and Jill's florist my friends mom ran, and a few other stores I guess I didn't go in because I don't remember the names.

Anyway, what an enjoyable childhood. Still racking my brain to remember more!

I must have been about 4, maybe it was in 1963 and I have memories?? of playing there with family friends' kids - just wonder if this magical place existed??? It would be great to hear that somebody else remembers this and can confirm??? Thanks!
The Green Tree Mall in Clarksville was famous for its big turtle with baby turtles that kids climbed on. It had steps on its back. I also remember it from the 60's - 70's.

The Ranch House was located at Preston and Phillips Lane on the site of the McDonalds. Karem's Meat Market was, at the time, A Dairy Queen. (They sold ice cream then)

That Shopping Center (I think it is Westchester Center) is deserted now. Lots of closed stores. Only thing open is a Dollar General and a Sav-A-Lot. The Long John Silvers closed about 10 years ago I think. I always remembered it because it did not have a drive through (God forbid people have to get out of their car) and it was ancient inside.

h & s hardware on preston is now closed. makes me sad because it was a cool old store and the people who worked there actually knew a lot about the products they were selling. guess they couldn't compete with the mega-chains.

But every time I went there, they would have to special order what I needed.
