Tri City

Those are great memories, I remember Tri City Bowl, the very first place I ever threw a bowling ball. I remember taking the bus downtown, to Sears, JC Penny's or Goldblatts. Yesterday I was at a street festival in Mount Dora, FL., and I had to park about five blocks away from the festivities because there simply was nowhere closer to park. As my wife, kids and I walked past the houses of people working on their lawns or just sitting outside enjoying a perfect day, I commented that I remember walking up and down the streets in Glen Park, Gary and being so envious of the people who lived in those massive homes with those perfectly manicured lawns and my family thought I had lost my mind. I breaks my heart when I go home and not willing to risk my life by walking to the end of my street.

Bill, you are so correct. Gary was just a wonderful place to live. My children can't believe what I was allowed to do and where I could go on my own or with my sister at just 8 or 9 years old. It was an ideal life for a child as could be imagined. There was never a lack of anything to do. My favorite places to go: Brunswick Little League , the firehouse on Clark Avenue, TriCity Shopping Center (Toytown), the bowling alley, and the bus to downtown to see my grandmother at her job at Schneider's with a follow up to the Palace Theater for Saturday movies. I think my youngest memories go back to the late 50"s, and swimming at the YMCA on 5th Avenue, and bowling at the Ambassador Lanes (manual pinsetters).

La photo qui me laisse le plus dubitatif est celle du bureau clair repeint bizarrement en bleu foncé... Il y avait sans doute des meubles le long du mur mais pourquoi ne pas avoir repeint jusqu'au plafond ? C'est très étrange

Hi there
Around2004/2005 I met the owner P. Nobel of Chateau Bijou.
It was his big wish to restore this castle.

I loved to see the place there in Labastide but it never came so far.
Nice pictures you take!
Best wishes MM
