What Was Where Back Then?
In August 2003 the 1953 Class of Central High School had its 50th Reunion andJack Welsh put together a quiz to test the memories of his classmates. Jack has graciously shared his quiz with us - see how many you can remember.
(Win special honor if you remember.)
So many of the businesses we frequented or were familiar with back in 1953 are long gone. Some have been replaced with new structures, others have become parking lots. Listed in the columns below are 26 addresses and the names of stores or business. Classmates who can correctly match the more than 13 addresses to the stores/businesses with-out peeking at the answers on some back page will win a special honor: Winners will be assigned to chaperone those classmates who are too easily befuddled to find their way from one reunion function to another on the assigned day and/or at the specified time. (If you can't find the correct answers on one of the back pages, forget it...you surely won't be able to match more than six or eight businesses to the right addresses.) If NO ONE can match at least half of the addresses to the businesses, we're all in deep do-do.
The source for all this information was the 1953 telephone directory... which you can find at the downtown library, if you have any doubts. Here we go!
Well let's see how many brain cells are functioning after 50 years. Don't be too depressed if you only get a half a dozen or so right.
