How many of you remember the F.W. Woolworth Department Store in your hometown? Boy I do, on any given Saturday, Mom, me and my sisters would get dressed up (I mean dresses, heels, gloves, purses to match) take the bus to Minnesota Avenue in Kansas City and shop.
Sometimes we would eat at the Woolworth counter, shop at Montgomery Ward's or J.C. Penney. Oh boy what memories. I was sent this menu a few weeks ago in an e-mail.
This would have been around 1957 to 1960. Coke is still my FAV.
Here's a photo of what Minnesota Avenue looked like in the day.
The only company still in business is J C Penney. The block now houses the police department and various offices, the buildings are still there.
Now we have hugh shopping malls, not with the same charm.
But I still have such great memories of these days. Hope you enjoyed my bit of nostalgia.
