Bill Flannugan was awesome. I remember about 35 years ago he used to use a metal hook to tighten our skates for us! He was a pretty old guy even then and man could that guy skate!

My dad used to get a paper grocery bag full of day old donuts from Teds Bakery for $1. They were awesome. Not many people remember her, but Al Agneli's mom, Mrs. Agnelli was the best old lady ever. She Was an Italian immigrant who barely spoke English and treated every kid on East State Street like they were her own. She always cooked for us and made us awesome cookies.

Texas Hot, great hot dogs, Reeds News Room/Howard A. Meat market next to it (felt so bad for him, kids would rip him off like crazy). The Mall before it was the mall. Alot of nice little places there. Wasn't there a small litle diner behind the New Fingernail shop on Main St. by the red light? I sort of remember one in a train depot/or trailer being there once upon a time.

Your right about that truth! There really used to be some great people in Salamanca. Ive left long long ago but once upon a time there were some awesome people there. When I was a kid the ONLY time we locked the door was when we went on summer vacation. The cops were cool and friendly guys, Al Agnelli, Ed Hill are 2 I remember well.
Shameful what its become

The demolition of the small businesses on Main Street to fuel the egos of Tom O'rourke and his cronies to build the "Mall' was the beginning of the end....

Someone mentioned "Fishers" I still have a Diawa Ultralight fishing pole and reel my dad bought for me from there for my birthday 28 years ago. As I remember it cost $29.99 and he let me pick it out. That set up cought quite a few trout from Quaker Lake and lots of pike and walleye fishing below Race Street........How about the railroad as something great that used to be in Salamanca?
