An old chum swears there is a lake under the Weatherford (sic) circle.

That Procter & Gamble rumor was started by a secret cabal of Amway distributors.

The Weatherford Traffic Circle has been gone for over 60 years. You maybe referring to the Benbrook Traffic Circle (to the south) and there is no lake underneath it.

East Rosedale in the Poly Area is brick with asphalt overlay. I was in the neighborhood today and noticed the brick street at some of the intersections.

What happened to the old brick that was discarded during the Rosedale Modernization of 2013-2016?

Please join my FB Groups, "Cowtown Attractions I Loved Before" and "Closed and Forgotten Cowtown Eateries". Lots of information and photos.

I am "pending" for the "Remember in Fort Worth When," page so some of this info might be old news,,,My Father ( FWPD,) would stop in Reds about once a week. I met him there maybe 20 times ( late 70's- early 80's.) I seem to remember that there was a "Red'. Tall, reddish hair (of course.) It was a "regulars " type of place where, sigh, yes, "everybody knows your name." Jukebox, dance floor -which would have tables with food on it for covered dish dinners. Somewhat middle aged crowd at that time. Mostly full of plumbing company owners, electricians, police, welders, some lawyers, etc. Haven't been in the place in at least 20+ years. Also remember that red beer set-ups were quite popular among the patrons that I knew - Miller Lites, tomato juice, and Tabasco sauce. I still have one every year on my Dad's birthdayPlease Joint
