We what do you think of the mural for Sweeney Corner. It dose not look like Sweeney's they had square windows not round. It looks like a space ship.

I am just glad they are trying keep the memory's of sweenys alive. I remember moving to Salem in 1976 and someone took me too sweeny's I was amazed 5 cent cokes!!!! WOW! Then I remember this fountain with lil goldfish in it. I thought it was so neat. I remember people waiting to get on the greyhound bus.
I almost cried when they tore down sweeny's it was like they were tearing down a part of history. Your right the mural doesnt look much like it. I was wondering what they used to come up with that likeness. I guess though I am pleased there will be a rememberance of some sort for the future generation of salem Il.

Oh no, I didn't know they tore Sweenys down. My fondest memories of Salem are my Aunt and Uncle and Sweenys.
