#89145 Identify this location and building

Posted by malibu65 on 25 December 2014 - 08:00 AM

I believe the location is between Handley-Ederville Rd. and NE 820 in Richland Hills. The railroad track runs along Hwy. 121. The name of the company is Waples-Platter(wholesale grocery supplier) At one time it was called White Swan which was in the same business. The building is still there but I have no idea what is there now since I have not been out there in some time. The picture was apparently taken from the 820 bridge looking west.

As a life long resident of Fort Worth, I was googling trying to find the name of the sea food restaurant at I30 and Forest Park. My wife and I ate our first meal there as man and wife 24 years ago today. Found this forum and it was the Spanish Galleon, where one of the entrances was the mouth of a whale.

It has been great reading about the places I hung out in high school - Paschal 1964. Grew up on Stanley Ave, one block South of the Chuck Wagon.

Does anyone remember the Goff's hamburger stand on camp bowie. I was about 5 years old in the mid-fifties. First time I ever had ketchup on a hamburger or sesame seeds on a bun. It was great.
My wife and I have had this ongoing argument on where it was. I say it was right behind where the denny's is today. Any info appreciated.
