  1. I saw soooo many movies at the Senate.

  2. Steve:

    We used to eat at Allen’s cigar store all the time. My Dad knew the man that ran it and then aslo the woman who took over (can’t remember their names). They had good shakes and hot dogs. It’s funny how that corner still looks like the Haynes and Essick shop, even in that yellow.

    The owner/operators of Allen’s Cigar Store for many years was Edward (Ed) Reavly & his wife Nora (Tiny) Reavley. I knew them both very well because I was employed across the Street at Coe’s Book Store for 25 years and had lunch at Allen’s quite frequently.

  8. Steve Walter:

    Thanks for passing along the owner’s names. I think Mrs Reavley sold me my first pipe. She said “A bulldog (shape) always looks good on a young man”, and that was that. Nice people, great store, good times.

  9. Jim Barrett:

    This corner was the busiest at one time…on the corners were: Ford Hopkins Drug Store; Allen’s Cigar Store; Coe’s Book Store and the U.S. Post Office…Great night spots: Saddle Club; The Sazrac; The Press Club behind Coe’s (in the alley)….movies @ the Senate, steakburgers @ Steak&Shake across from Senate (I remember waitress Mary Buscher)

  10. Vernon Copeland:

    I used to be a soda jerk at Ford Hopkins Drug Store prior to and while attending Brown’s Business College 1949 and 1950. My forte was in making the best “I don’t care coke” there ever was. Brown’s Business College was on the 2nd floor between 6th & 7th St across from the Post Office. By the way, Thanks for the memories!

  11. Pat:

    I also used to walk from SHS 5 days a week to catch the bus home, stopping in Walgren’s for a coke!!

  12. Pat:

    I worked at the Post Office and we eat at Allen’s all the time and the women name was VI
    and she lived on Eastman Ave. Was a lovely woman to talk to.
