No, I don't remember the old bus station between 8th and 9th St. The only one I remember is the Greyhound Station further east on 4th Ave. closer to Marshall. I used to make trips via Greyhound when in boarding school. I barely remember the Tipton theatre at all. Seems like there was a NEW CHINA RESTAURANT next door or close by the Tipton.(Finding a grub worm crawling out of my salad was a revolting shock that caused my family to avoid that place from that day.)<quoted text>no I never attended the show but watched it many times on tv. and knew some of the kids on the show. I worked after school and on weekends so had little time to attend. I lived in the west end beside the old cabell school and attended there thru the 4th grade then moved to Proctorville Ohio and graduated Fairland H.S. but knew and ran into many of the kids in HHs graduating in 60 that went to school with me at Cabell. another resturant you may recall was the T&T lunch on 3rd ave and 12th street near the Roxy theater I believe. My uncle was a cab driver in the early 40's and early 50s and he used to let me ride with him (actually babysitting me) while mom worked.I remember they knew the schedules of all the trains C&O and B&O and Greyhound bus and would be there to try and get a fair. Do you remember the old bus depot on fourth ave between 8th and 9th street around where they built the Tipton theater next door to Parkers Jewelry?
I am hoping somebody will write a book about how it was while growing up in Huntington back during the "age of innocence". How great would that be?? There are lots of mighty good memories connected to our hometown and also some funny stuff from a child's perpective that might be entertaining. It would be extremely nostalgic for some of us, I'm sure.
