The only snow cone place I remember was near Beechwood park on 9th. It was just a small block building and a rough-looking man ran it. He had a big block of ice and a machine that turned it into chips.
I like going to the Bob Evans on No. 2nd St. They still had car hops then. There was, also, a burger shack at the corner of Delaware and No. 2nd. Can't remember the name, but we would cross flood wall from the old boat club to get a burger.
All I ever heard the place called was Slimeys Iceballs.Com e to think of it,that was a pretty good name for it.

I love this!! I also saw Billy Jack at the RO-NA!! City buses used to run all over. Kresges' had the little diner inside, what about Artwells? Walker's shoe store? Romer's Jewelry? Dick's record shop? JC Penney? The city pool used to open at 11 and sometimes stay open until 8! Can anyone remember what store it was that had the old, wooden, creaky staircase that led downstairs? I was too little to remember what kind of store it was, but I sure remember Toy Town at Christmas time in the upstairs of JC Penney! How I wish times were like this now!(Oh, there was a street fair where Rax is, and what was the name of that drug store where Spare time is? Thank you for the pleasant walk down memory lane <3

There was a little red sno cone building or trailer that sat out front of the Wilson Building in the 70's on 3rd. street. Loved getting those blue sno cones there growing up!

I loved the Kleins Restaurant for their terrific milk shakes...(little known fact: they made their own chocolate syrup).
Speaking of milk shakes, what was the name of the little ice cream shop corner of 7th and ?? quincy? I remember Mrs. Cunningham ran the place.
Yeah, and as a kid it wouldn't be Saturday if we didn't go to Mortz Auto on 3rd St. They had model airplanes and steering wheel knobs with racy pictures on them. Then, over to the RO-Na to create some trouble, followed by a burger at the Big boy.
Don't get me started.
My grandmother ran the ice cream shop on 7th and I think Mulberry(?) she also ran Terri Jo's up by the high school. Her name was Brownstead. Some of her grandchildren were Cunninghams.

My grandmother owned Terri Jo's and she also used to have another shop down on 7th closer to the old Campbell school. Her name was not Cunningham though. It was Brownstead. She named the shop after my sister and cousin. You might be thinking Cunningham because that was the last name of some of her other grandchildren.

Yes, it was Mrs. Brownstead. I remember playing pin ball machines and drinking mild shakes after school. It was on the corner of 7th and either Quincy or Mulberry.
Did anyone go to Don Keys BBQ in Coal Grove? It was a big night out when my parents took us there.

I remember a place just below ironton it was on what was then Rt. 52. Now known as Co. Rd. 1A or Gallia Pike. It was just past the county line it was called Myrts BBQ they had plate lunch menus as well as burgers an fries an hotdogs it just depended on how much time you had or wanted to spend they had pooltable an pinball as well as jukebox. There was a full service g filling station an garage as well as a motel it always done a good business because it was on the main highway back then!!! Like everything else progress took hold an they built the 4 lane highway an the business drooped off!! Lol life has a way of making you laugh at yourself when you are young you are always looking into the future wishing your life away when you get there all you can seem to do is look back!! Thanks for the trip back to much much better times!
