    What a small world

    So on the day I was born on April 8th 1964 Jim Ostrowski's father met my uncle.

    I wonder if Stephen Burr is still alive. He would be about 86

    Now this is cool. Someone posted this up in a Lovejoy Group page. It's the building that was across from my grand fathers house/bar. My grand parents knew the owners.



    This is google map from 2007..

    It's been torn down.

    And this is even cooler. My father was a very good pool player. I see him being mentioned on facebook.

    How this was in front of the bar before they remodeled it in the 40's



    And if you walked through that front door this is what you saw. That was my grand father behind the bar. His sister and brother-in-law were owners also.











    And this is when they sold the old bar after the remodel was completed. I wonder where it went.








    Looks like they got in trouble until they started to serve food again. My grand father would tell me stories ALL the time
