HOLY COW!!!!!!!!!

Talk about memories, I forgot about some of those until I saw the pictures. I think Crystals Pizza and Mrs Bairds on 30 brought back the most!

THANKS MILLIONS FOR SHARING FWFF'r!!!

I accidentally logged in “above” under my other account (I need more coffee)

I would love to find a picture of some of the following…
*The old drive inn that was on Cherry Lane (Cherry Lane Drive inn, I think it was?)
*More shots of the old I-30 (late 70’s early 80’s)
*Kenny’s shoes store off of the Weather traffic circle
And other west side images from that era.

I was born and raised in Ridglea Hills early 70’s and 80’s, I remember my mom taking me to Ridglea Drug (70's) to sit down and eat BLT’s and drink malts, and of course CRYSTAL'S. Watching the 3 stooges in that dark, back room and eating pizza!! GREAT MEMORIES!

If you will explain how or where on this site I can learn how, I will post several I-30, 820 and I-35 photos I have from the highway dept. Alternatively, give me your email address and I'll email to you.

Thanks FWFF'r for posting this site, I don't think the Birdville Historical Society had the 1983 photo of the Haltom Theater. That photo might help if one day an authentic restoration of the facade is undertaken.

Not to kill the buzz, but this thread should probably be merged with this one.

I kinda figured that this site or something to do with it had been mentioned or linked here before but being new, wasn't sure...

I don't know how to merge this with the other thread...
