My first job was at Panozzo's-- I remember kids bringing in a note from their parents with the shopping list-- bologna, bread, milk, and cigarettes-- and we sold it to them!
I didn't see anyone mention Dog N Suds on sibley near the pool-- with the trays on the car windows

The carnival and parade were always the highlight of the summer. It meant the summer was half over and was almost time to think about the new school year. The 4th on our street of 154th and Drexel was unbelievable. So many fireworks...99% illegal..lol. I would get up early on the 5th looking for firecrackers that did not go off while riding my bike. The police never bothered the neighbors on the 4th and no one ever got hurt. Best of Times wasn't it??......

Let me backup on this, it was on 144th ST in Riverdale between Wentworth and LaSalle on the north side of the street. The name is close though.
I believe your talking about Mike's Sunshine something, maybe Market. It had the butcher counter in the back and it was a little grocery store. It took up two storefronts and I believe the Village Hall is located there now

I lived in Riverdale from 1965 to 1996. I miss the beautiful trees and everything else about Riverdale and Dolton. The Dolton carnival was such a blast; my husband worked there as a volunteer fireman, and loved the girls. I remember the DogNSuds next to Kmart on Sibley. Sibley was the main strip. I miss the good ole days back home. Thank you for this blog.

If I remember right, the owner of Dolton Surplus & Salvage owned a Tuxedo Rental in Harvey near the southwest corner of Sibley & Halsted?

Don Hart and his wife Roberta are the founders of Bozo's (Boz, legally) Hot Dogs. There are still some around but the first was at 142nd street and Cottage Grove in a Dolton. Don was a nice guy and former Mayor of the city.

I'm glad to learn that Damiani's pizza is again available! I'm going to make it out there on our next trip back home.

Tom, Horney's was one of the first places I saw when we moved to Dolton. As Vallue Village, I bought tons of 45's there and had my new Schwinn Sting Ray stolen from out front. I used to deliver drugs for Neumann Drugs across the street.

Hope all my former Dolton friends and neighbors are well.

Loved Bozo hot Dogs! Newman Drugs Sponsored my Babe Ruth team. A trip to Value Village was always something to look forward since it seemed so far away when you lived by St. Jude. Movies at the Dolton show when I was a kid were also fun. I think I saw a picture its now as a men's club.

Dolton has changed a lot unfortunately since the housing projects closed in south Chicago.

A good buddy of mine, Steve Tillery, delivered for Newmans back in the mid 1960's. I remember Newmans white Chevy Corvair with a large Rx mortar and pestle attached to the roof
