  1. Anybody remember this company--or him for that matter? I think he may have been on Houston Wrestling...
  2. The Bissonnet Superette west of Robindell Shopping Center met all those requirements--complete with meat counter! There was also the Lucky 7 closer to Bellaire
  3. Do you remember Johnny's Hamburger House near the 7/11?
  4. Big City News was on Bissonnett for some time
  5. I believe the tall guy next to Larry is Dan Seals--later to become "England Dan"
  6. In regard to the Hitchin' Post thread below, there was also a Hitchin' Post eatery on Bissonett & Bonhomme for a few years in the late 60's--this later became a hangout called Chubby Chucks..curious if anyone has recall on either of these!
  7. There was also an ARCO station on the corner--I remember Dad giving me 50 cents & I'd walk down there & fill up the gas can for the lawn mower & had money left over for an ICEE next door..hey do you remember the guy that always wore a hard hat that seemed to be at the Handee Mart everytime I came in? Nice guy but can't remember his name. I think I did start that thread a while back--it's pretty cool to see pics whenever someone posts them..for some reason my computer won't load Googlr Rarth
  8. I've got pictures of the old Abercrombie house before they tore it down to make way for the Kroger in 1977--I'll post as soon as I can get my scanner working. We used to ride motorcycles on the bayou bluff right by there--I actually remember when the school bus from Bonham would drop off one of the daughters there in the mid 60's..she was prbly in the 6th grade at the time..they had a cellar that was kind of a creepy hideout long after they moved out..Anyone remember the Handee Food Mart right across the street?
  9. I remember the old general store & barber shop that used to be on Old Westheimer --I'm sure thats gone now!
  10. Anything left structure-wise? Looks like that east-west road covers what could've been the track
  11. Mr. Hamburger--now that was a classic! Man I wish someone had a picture of it--you know there's gotta be one in someone's attic somewhere!
  12. Saw Elvis @the Summitt in Aug '76 but didn't have my camera with me!!! I believe the ticket price was a whopping $12
  13. I remember this hotel wasnt it on s main near the loop on your way to main st? Thanks for the pic where did you find that

  14. Wasn't that Gene's Model Shop? Bought many a model car & even a few Estes Rockets there
