Re: Interesting Saturday
- Sam: I have the location.
It was (according to record) still at the corners of south amin and york as of 2001 but..ten years is a long time and residents wanted the building torn down.
Son is checking today. If it's still there I'll get photos.
If it isn't I'll see what photos Bob Barrett might have.
