Man we looked forward to the annual "wish book" sent out by Sears every fall for the Christmas toy buying season. Funny that the stores that invented it are now dependent on brick and mortar stores which are dying.
Ah, The Wish Book! I remember being given time limits on The Wish Book so we could all have a chance to make out our Christmas list. Good memories.

Very good point by the way. Our back to school clothes were always ordered out of the Sears catalog. Except for shoes and the girl's uniforms. Marmer's for shoes and I can't remember the name of the uniform store on Warsaw. Was it Huber's?

It was Huber's Department Store (although by 1970 they only had one department, school uniforms, as far as I know). It was still around until it, and its contracts with local parochial schools, was bought out by SchoolBells from out of town.

I remember it well. Don Huber was a good man. I remember going in there when Don's dad was still running the store.

That is a lost era. You would go in and get almost anything you needed as far as clothes. The Huber's knew you by name and always treated you great. They had their own payment plan if you could not afford to pay all at once without charging interest.

I can still hear the cricking wooden floors they had.

My dad was friends with Mr. Lance and they have been one of the anchors at DelFair for half a century. Sad to see them move.

I heard speculation that the property may be razed and converted into a housing development. You know how rumor-mongering is around here. There is really nothing to substantiate it but hearsay. But it was brought up in a conversation with a friend that is former Delhi Pike business owner.

It is also sad to see the vacant lot of the Blockbuster strip and Funky-Dunks building.

That's good to see.

A trip to Northgate was a big deal twenty or thirty years back. The days of the "mall crawlers" has probably passed. The teens and twenty-somethings probably don't go to those places for the social aspect as much as my generation did.

I think shopping habits have been affected by the proliferation of outlet malls, on-line shopping and a shrinking population base. Hopefully they will stay viable and an important part of that community.

Assuming low end housing development, that's probably worse than the rotting building that currents stands.

I've heard this rumor as well but I would assume that this would require a zoning change and I would hope Delhi wouldn't approve such a request.

A housing development? When you say housing Development I assume you mean Section 8 or public housing. A rotting Delfair Shopping Center would be far better than that. I hope Delhi's trustees aren't that stupid. That would ruin that entire area.

Very cool. Based on the cars in that picture I would guess that picture is from the '40s maybe.

The picture of Central Parkway above it is very cool too. Can't tell if that is smog or fog in that picture.

It seems they have that sign every year around this time. They have also had the one at Cheviot and Blue Rock (Near St. James) a few times over the years.

This is awesome news.

Quote:
GREEN TWP. — The township is buying an old railroad right of way for the purpose of developing a biking and hiking trail.

The Green Township trustees voted Jan. 27 to buy a section of the former Chesapeake and Ohio railroad property. The portion of the railroad, which also belonged to CSX, the township plans to buy runs mostly parallel to Harrison Avenue and stretches from Hutchinson Road to Marie Avenue, near the intersection of Bridgetown and Race roads.
http://news.cincinnati.com/article/2...p-biking-trail

My best guess as to where the path will go based on the clearing in the trees that still exists from the C&O tracks: http://i.imgur.com/XAT4DT4.png

Not much of a trail there and really not much room for any type of expansion as far as I can see.

It's something.

Also from the article...
Quote:
Extending the trail farther northwest along the railroad line and connecting it to Veterans Park is the township’s long-term goal, Rosiello said. The township would work with The Christ Hospital, which owns a portion of the railroad property between Hutchinson Road and Veterans Park, and other property owners to make the project happen, he said.

It needs to be at least 10 miles to be worth while. There is no reason for the west side not to have the equivalent of the Loveland Bike Trail going from near downtown out to the City of Harrison.

Unfortunately, people weren't as forward thinking with the C&O of Indiana railroad in the 1970s. Had the railroad's right-of-way been preserved intact we'd have a much better chance at something similar to the Loveland Bike Trail today.

I agree. Looking at that satellite image EHS 2001 provided there seems to be a lot of occupied land around that trail. I just don't see much room to expand and even if they can get to Veterans Park that doesn't add much.

The measuring tool on Google Maps indicates that adding a second phase from Hutchinson Rd to Veterans' Park would add about 1 more mile.

Hopefully this plan comes to fruition and it eventually leads to many more miles of bike trails on the Westside.

For those interested this appeared in this morning's Enquirer. It is a fundraiser with Pete Rose doing his one man show at the Covedale Theater to raise funds for the new Incline Theater in East Price Hill.

Date is Sunday March 30th 8:00

Should be a fun night. Pete is a great storyteller. This will be the second event Pete has done for the Incline Theater. He attended a fundraiser back a few months at PrimaVista. We appreciate what he is doing to help the community he grew up in.

Does anyone know what's going on in the parking lot in front of the Remke's in Delhi? The two buildings on either side of Wild Mike's have been torn down.

After some researching by Ehs 2005 and I, we've found that a company called Devonshire REIT, Inc. purchased the shopping center in October 2013 for $4.5 million.

Yes, and in the section between Remke and Aldi, they list 'Inspire Fitness'

It appears they are looking for another tenant for lot F.

There was a Daily Donuts on the Pike, thirty years ago, which was converted into the Skyline. I believe it failed due to competition from the neighborhood bakeries. I guess times have changed.

I noticed the Western Hills Remke/Biggs has been completely converted to just "Remke" now, they finally changed the sign. The only reason I go there anymore is to buy beer. Remke has destroyed the bread/produce section. Kroger is far superior a far superior grocery store now.

Either way, I hope the store stays open. Would be a real black eye if that location were to go vacant.
