I received this e-mail from Elaine at http://Averettladynana.blogspot.com. I remember well eating at Woolworth's, along with the several other fountains that could be found in the dime stores. Those days I cherish, the memories of downtowns you would actually see full of shoppers, sitting at counters enjoying a sandwhich or a malted. It was a pleasant lunch break from shopping all the wonderful stores towns had to offer. I don't know about other cities, but our downtown, still existing but barely, has been taken over by the local mall. I miss walking store to store, Christmas shopping in the winter weather with Holiday music piped through outdoor speakers. I miss the department stores on every block, Sears, Penny's and Sperry's, and the dime stores with their numerous treasures and food counters. Gone are the days. I wish they would return so this generation could experience life in the good old days, even if for only one. What childhood memory do you cherish?
