Jteegardner said:How many remember that the West Side used to have Gold Circle, Van Leunens (sp?), Meiers, McAlpins, Shillitos, Elder-Beerman and Central Hardware. How about keller's IGA on Rulison and Bruno's on Glenway. I remember the railroad bridges on Ferguson. We used to drink beer under that bridge. Also how about Dunham when it was a tuberculosis hospital? Oh the good ole days

PantherVOR said:There was also a Chinatown and VanLuenens where Kroger now stands on Delhi Pike. I remember when they built those places and tore down part of the woods we played in.
Who remembers the A&P and Meijer Square where the old Thriftway store was in Delfair?
Also, the Kreske (sp!) store where Hader Hardware is in Delfair. They had a lunch counter that served great (and I mean great) subs.
Who remembers when Frisch's actually brought the food out to your car?
Who remembers when Greenwell Rd. between Foley and Delhi Pk. was still a gravel road?
Who remembers when Delhi Chili was down the street in that strip mall, I believe next door to Hank & Eve's.
There was also a Hitching Post restaurant (best fried chicken ever) in the little strip mall on Delhi Pike across from Delhi Chili.
Wasn't there a Rink's department store over there on Ferguson where WalMart is?
Well that's all I can do for now, thanks for the trip down memory lane!
Does anybody remember the woods that used to be between Field 5 and the soccer fields in Delhi Park?

jjakq27 said:I think the A&P/Meijer store was called Twin Fair for a time also. I saw Anthony Munoz there once during his rookie year in 1980. He used to live in Indian Lookout Apartments on Anderson Ferry.
There used to be a boat place behind Wendy's and Taco Bell where the Huntington Bank is now.
Maybe Colerain can use that excuse with Gary Pride?PantherVOR said:
The funny thing is, I remember "recruiting" allegations back then when somebody would show up with someone who wasn't from their "street" or neighborhood. The excuse was always "he slept over at my house so he can play with us today". Field 3 at Delhi Park was our "home" field!
