bwags as you already know me I do remember the track meets. We would have tryouts during gym and compete at Woodward with the other elementary schools that fed into Woodward. I went for kickball and ball throwing. Remember that Rex worked as the pool super at the JCC in the summer time. As my father and mother were real active in the JCC, Rex was close to my family. Thanks again for the yearbook. I was just back in Cincy last weekend and showed it to a few old friends and relations and everyone thought it was great. Jon says hello. I remember one time of visiting some friends of my parents on Eastlawn and low and behold my fourth grade teacher, Mrs. Harris lived downstairs from them. And I remember Mrs. Russell had an apt. on Northcut right behind the Valley Shopping Ctr. And I ate at Chili Time on Vine the other night too. Sure do miss Roselawn. I was reminded that Carl's barber shop moved to the Essex House. Of cours my uncle built that building and sold it just before the bricks fell off. How many remember the Buccaneer Motel and Nightclub. The owners were old friends too and we Hiudt's spent many a night there. Dee Felice band. My old boss Herb Kirschner played there. He also at one time owned the Whisper Room and Hong Kong resturant. And I was reminded of the old Roselawn motel and now I can picture it at Summit and Reading Rd. We made a great friend there in Jake. A wasn't Bob Skinner Dodge there too? Oh and how about Summit Lanes which at one time was owned by Dan Tehan. He was such a great guy. Sherriff here and an NFL ref as a tenant in an apt that i cared for. But I have divulged too far from Roselawn School and the track meets.

as a matter of fact Alan's picture is the one next to me in the fourth grade. We were friends since we were in the same grade and he lived on Corvalis and we on Beaverton almost directly behind each other. His mother had the yawn shop in the Roselawn Ctr shopping center and his dad did various jobs including Edgemont pony keg and the basket room at the JCC.

Default My minor corrections to others' memories and more...

To the east of the Gardens was a chemical plant, maybe called
Grace Chemical (WAS HILTON DAVIS). Across from the chemical plant, on the
corner of Langdon Farm and Wiehe, was a small luncheonette.
Just north, on Wiehe, was an fm radio station, WAEF. This gets
into the neighborhood of Golf Manor, which extends east
toward Montgomery Road.


The brick facing on the Essex House came down in the late 60's or early 70's and the building was closed for repairs.

Daisy Donuts, just north of Victory Pkwy. The name was later changed
to Daily Donuts, ca. 1962, although the Daisy trademark remained.
Branches appeared around town - no idea whether this was the original.
The chain disappeared around 1980, I think.

The above mentioned donut shop on Reading Road just north of Victory Parkway and almost across from Sugar n' Spice was DUNKIN DONUTS. I lived in Paddock Hills just up the hill behind Sugar n' Spice and remember getting a balloon at the opening of the donut store and it poping when it hit the generator truck with a search light in the parking lot.


A tad south, on Victory Pkwy, a high-rise apartment building opened
around 1970. There was a restaurant on the first floor which closed
several years later.

The apartment building above is called the PARKLANE APARTMENTS. I had a good friend over there and would cut through Avon Fields Golf Course, cross Reading Road and go swimming in the pool over there. I remember being poolside (age 11) and seeing, for the first time, the Rollingstone's Sticky Finger Album cover with the real zipper. I thought it was so creative for an album cover.

Next to Loretta's restaurant was Gleuck's Drugs and a toy store. I remember a toaster in Loretta's restaurant that carried the bread slices up on a conveyer towards the heating element and dropped the toasted bread slices at the bottom of the machine.

Next to Capri Pizza was the THree Brothers Market. I worked there the summer of 1972 as my first paying job. I unloaded fruits and vegetables from the delivery trucks, sold the fruits and vegetables, baged ice cubes, sorted soda and beer bottles inside a fenced cage with barbed wire. There was a ten foot deep watermellon pool in the front of the store for chilling the mellons that I almost fell in as I was reaching for a big mellon.

Does anyone remember Cincinnati's first traffic reporter, Lt. Art Merhing. I remember him flying around the city in the late afternoon in the Korean War vintage whirliebird. As a child I would listen for the sound of the helicopter and several time I ran out into the middle of Avon Fields Golf Course just to see it close up.

I would also walk up Reading Road towards the intersection of Reading and Paddock Roads to visit the Fire Station (Engine 9) on Reading Road just south of Debbie Lane.


On Paddock Road, just south of the Norwood Lateral was an icecream place called Berlings. Does anyone else remember the place. I remeber going there in the late 60' and listening to the man serving the icecream tell stories about the area (Paddock Hills) before it was developed.

What about the milk men from Miller Dairy or Cedar Hill Farms, bread delivery, egg delivery or a family named Rizzo that had a fruit and vegetable truck?

Default Barbers and Barber Shops

Frank was Frank Crea....black hair and a moustache. The other barber shop on the Reading Road business strip in the 1950s was on the west side of the street and was the first business imediately north of the White Castle parking lot. Bill Fischer had the first chair and the name of the business was under either his first or last name.
Howard was Howard Mounce and he went with Jim when the business moved to the Valley Shopping Center. Howard left because, according to Jim, his wife wanted to move back to southern Kentucky. So he bought a barber shop, I think either in Hazard or Somerset. I recall seeing in some publication a few years ago that Howard came back to Jim's Barber Shop.

Thanks, dsheldman. Actually that error had been pointed out by jkgibb1
some time early in the thread and was later "corrected". As for
Daily (originally, Daisy) Donuts, there were branches in Finneytown,
Deer Park, Delhi and Woodlawn, to name a few. They also used to
bring a trailer to the zoo's Food and Home Show, way back when.

We patronized that market, and Capri, in the late '50's and early '60's.
For some reason, the name Dixie's comes to mind. Wonder whether it
might have switched hands at some point?

Oh, yeah - he was a local celebrity. One of the downtown streets was
renamed after him, ca. 1970.

Do you remember any of the stories? They would be a great addition to the
thread.
