We're Georgie bombs the chunks of dried earth from the little Cal river that were probably soaked with oilHi. I'm really late to this party, but Wow! I stumbled upon this quite by accident...a 3 year topic...amazing. A couple of these memories really rocked me. The trampolines in the parking lot at Almar Plaza. I didn't think anyone remembered that. They were right in the corner there at 154th and Cottage Grove 10 cents for 10 minutes of bouncing! I checked out the space a few years ago. You could still see where the pits had been filled in and the blacktop was patched over them. I still remember seeing that A&P sign being put in position by a crane, pretty much the finishing touches of Almar Plaza Construction, in 1959. OK...here's my obscure question: Does anybody remember "Georgie Bombs"? You would know what the were if you played by the river around 158th and Drexel anytime in the 1960s. Thanks for all the memories!
They were so heavy?
