I was browsing an old neighborhood newspaper called Southwestern Times. The issue is dated June 7, 1945.

Here's a unique business. A bicycle rental company across from the new stadium. Very cool find!!

Anyone remember this place?


I'm not sure what stadium it refers to, as that part of Main was pretty empty in 1944

This would have been across the street from the old Rice Stadium that is now the Rice Track Stadium. Cool story is that the old stadium had a 220 yard straight line, so that race could be run without a corner.
