@Diva on The Q   We also had Woolworth's and Kresege's.

 

Those were the days when you went "downtown" - we walked, too, although there were plenty of exhaust spewing busses.

 

No malls back then.

@Cakers3: Speaking of downtown, I remember the days when a trip downtown was something special. Everybody dressed up. Women wore dresses, heels, nylon stockings and carried pocketbooks (now called handbags). Men wore suits and hats. As children, we dressed in our "Sunday Best" as well. Those were the days...

@Diva on The Q   We also said "pocketbooks".  LOL

 

Nothing was opened on Sunday when I was growing up but we lived so close to "downtown"  we just walked whenever.

 

Remember this song???
