Enjoyed you're site. Takes me back a little, but not far enough. Does anyone recall "Phil's Candy Store" on the N/W corner of Division and the Blvd in 1930? I remember getting "orange ice" at two cents a cup (?) there at that time. I joined the Navy in May, 1941 at 17 yrs of age, and I was gone. I was born at and lived at 223 Henry.
