Anyone remember those Charlie Case barber shop quartet commercials, with them singing" Charlie My Boy". Is Charlie Case Tire still around?

Three very old Keystone glass slides of cultivating Egyptian cotton and irrigating orange trees near Phoenix plus a petrified log bridge at the Petrified Forrest; I bet vandals stole that and sold pieces in curio shops.

All gone, Newberry's on the left, then Kress's, Penney's, and way down the street is Korrick's. On the right is the Rialto marquee, Saratoga restaurant, and way down the Fox Theater. Note the flags, don't see that anymore either.

And the women are all totally covered up. Back in the 50's a girl came to school in a dress up to her neck and down below her knees but she was sent home because it was sleeveless.

Does anyone remember the name of the housing complex on the West side of Phoenix in the early 1950's which was made of quonset huts strung together? My first husband lived there as a child and always spoke fondly of those memories. I think it was near 35th Avenue and Van Buren.

The best part of my childhood growing up in Phoenix was the ice skating rink. I practically lived there on the weekends between 1957 and 1960, when it was converted to a curling rink. I was in a couple of ice shows at Christmastime and my dad managed the amateur hockey team for a while. Last time I looked, the building was still there - part of a car dealership on either 7th Street or 7th Avenue. Good times!
After the ice rink closed my sisters and I would go downtown most weekends to see a movie. The theaters were the Fox, Paramount, and Palms (on Central). I remember going to see 'Black Sunday' at The Strand. Mom wouldn't let us go to that theater so we had to get our dad to drive us. Ha!
