Yeah, I was more of a late 60s, early 70s kid. Hub Kapp and the Wheels were a little before my time, but I still remember Condello's Sgt. Pepper parodies and thinking how cool it would be to see them play at fabulous Legend City. Darn, I never got a Ladmo Bag. I live on the Eastside now.

I vaguely remember a miniture golf course around the area where the Black Canyon access road splits into 27th Ave. I think it was there for a couple of years after Metro Center opened, then they moved it a mile further north on the east side of Metro Center along the Black Canyon access road and I-17. I also spent a lot of time at Golf 'n Stuff playing video games, pinball and air hockey! That was our hang-out when we were teen-agers.

Somebody mentioned earlier about walking across the tarmac at Sky Harbor's terminal 2 after it opened in 1962. Everytime I've flown out of terminal 2, we used jetways, and I'm not sure exactly when they were added, to the best of my knowledge, the jetways were there when the terminal opened. Unless of course you meant terminal 1, which didn't have jetways.

I do also remember terminal 1, which was closed down after terminal 4 opened in late 1990, and it was later torn down. I know up until 1984, which was the last time I boarded a flight out of terminal 1 (SouthWest Airlines) I had to walk across the tarmac, but luckily it was in October not in the middle of July!

I also know that they're going to build another terminal where terminal 1 used to be.

I don't remember that minitaure golf course, but I remember Green Gables. Since I was a kid, I have no idea where it was/is.

You may be thinking of Putt-Putt, which was right on the freeway and not far from Alpine Valley. Alpine Valley was an older course, first appearing in the early to mid '60s. As the name suggests, it was a theme course that was evocative of the Swiss Alps. Had much more character than the relatively bland Putt-Putt courses. It must have disappeared in the mid to late '70s. I think there's an apartment complex on the site now. Its address was 8313 N. 27th Ave.

The Green Gables course was at 24th St. and Thomas. It was operated by the same company as Alpine Valley, and was also a theme course.

I remember someone telling me that the reason a lot of the old houses in downtown phoenix have balconies was to hang wet sheets. Smart.
Actually many of the old homes had screened in porches. During the summer, after the sun went down, the screens would be wetted down, truning them into evporative coolers. Folks would then sleep outside on their porches.

Of course! It's always been a real busy crossover there at 96th St and the Trail. Lots of crashes, especially during snowbird season. Before the freeway went through, Apache Trail was US60.
