Anybody remember when Spanky Mcfarland one of the Little Rascals came to town, seems like he came to the Booth Theater on a firetruck for a preformance, don't remember anymore. How about Richard from the Booth Theater and the old theater before the Booth, think it was called the Beldorf ?

Remember the HUGE green DINO the Dinasour that Sinclair gas station used to give away? Or maybe
it was free with a fill up ?
Cant remember where Sinclairs was though. Was it the old Kendricks gas station up there by the park on N Penn?
Anyone know?
And grabbing a cold coke out of the old red and white deep fridges for a coke?
LOL had to hunt for a bottle opener back then if the one on the side of the machine was broke.
