Do people remember these businesses on Salem Avenue.

Uncle John's candy store
Keyhole Restaurant
Red Barn
Sportswear Mart

I also remember a paint can up high with a paint brush, Durrell Paints.

Liberal Grocery Store

I remember the McDonald's on Free Pike when they dug up the grave yard and moved it to the corner to make a bigger parking lot. There was a steakhouse across the street but I can't remember it's name. I also remember a Holiday Health Spa across from a grocery store around Klepinger and Salem Rd. It seems like the grocery store was called Foodtown. I think there was a Golden Nugget pancake house and Ponderosa down the street more. Then the library and DQ. There was a KFC forever on either Detroit or Pittsburgh and Salem next to Liberal grocery store. I remember a long time ago there was a place called Shopper's Fair Department Store. We bought our school clothes in there.

newsnot: Yeah, I wish I had eaten there just once for the experience. I wasn't much into real food back in those days and probably would have been to dumb to appreciate it. I would have rather had a Barnbuster or some junk like that.

Yes, the Keyhole was a full-service restaurant.

I went to Anticoli's with my family several times as a kid (in the late 50s-early 60s). Also, I remember it being a popular place for high schoolers to go to dinner before prom.

The Dugout is long gone. The old firehouse and Royal Crest Dairy buildings are still standing but empty. I don't remember any of the others.

Royal Crest was on Salem just north of Gettysburg. It was right across the street from Shoppers Fair. When I bought my home in 1973, they still delivered milk. We had that insulated box on the porch and would leave a note saying what we wanted. A year or two later, they stopped doing it, probably because it was too expensive.

Driver62: I got it now. I remember the old insulated boxes, if you still have one I would hang on to it. Royal Crest used to come through my neighborhood late afternoon if memory serves, just a couple of hours before the Whites Bakery Truck.
