The Good Old Days on the South Side

businesses, Cudahy, community, restaurant, So. Milwaukee

I miss these things about the South Side. How many do you remember?

Gimbels and JC Penney Outlet at Packard Plaza, Lloyd's Lunch (in SM), Grebe's Bakery (SM), IHop (Cudahy), Greg's Pumpkin Tree (Cudahy), the 41 Twin Drive-In, Majestic theater, Garden Theater, the Spectacle of Music (the old way with the parade and competition), Big Boy's and Taco Bell (in SM), ice skating at the lagoon, walking the RR tracks to get from one end of SM to the other, the "pit" behind SM High, Miss Awe, the BE Club (my first job!), Ladish, when the City of South Milwaukee Offices was an elementary school, And the ROCKETS (especially when they beat the Packers), Black Bear Soda in Cudahy,  and picking apples in the abandoned orchard which is now Bender Park on Ryan Road.  Now that I'm thinking about it, there are way too many to mention them all here...Can you tell I went to So Milwaukee High School?  I'm not telling how long ago it was though!
