    Knowing from a close connected experience... :'(

    An adult should be there beside the ice-cream truck to watch out for idiots who don't know what an ice-cream truck is and who are driving down the road not paying enough attention.

    That was about 47 years ago. Not me. My boss lost his little angel one day like that. He was never the same... :'( The business shut down soon after that happened. He stopped working. I don't know what became of him.

    Now people have phones they're looking at sometimes while they might be passing an ice-cream truck.

    I'd stand in the road now for sure as a guard to keep the little ones safe and SMILING for many more years to come.

    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    I have one a couple of miles from me and still going strong in central Illinois.

    Fortunately there are still some of these around and doing well. The Made-Rite was born in Muscatine, Iowa in the 20's.

    The years working for Tweeter, I miss those days.
    My personal quest is to save to world of bad audio, one thread at a time.

    My ESL-57s once belonged to a Tweeter VP. :)
    Tweeter (Etc.) was a big deal here in the Northeast once upon a time.

    2 liter bottle? What the heck is that?

    Mom would send my brother and I for a run to the grocery store, and having to balance these wobbly 8-packs on the handlebars of my bike. Occasionally, a bottle or two didn't make it home! :smile:

    I think ours was red. Oh the memories of choking on Liver and Onions, well-done steak, and Fish on Fridays. I don't think my mom ever cooked anything that I liked. If it weren't for paint chips I probably would have starved to death.

    Was long gone by around 1963~64. Large pizzas were $1.75-$2.00 in late 1950's. Funny names for their sandwiches.

    Here's some iconic "hamburger architecture". :p


    And a slightly updated version.


    I forgot to mention that our local Carroll's (Burlington, Vermont) was built on the site of the original Elizabeth Lund Home for Unwed Mothers, birthplace of infamous serial killer Ted Bundy. :o
