Reader photos: Memory Lane businesses in the 1960s

Steve Kohler recently shared these photos, possibly from the mid-1960s, of several businesses in the area of East Market Street and Memory Lane. That’s his – and my – best guess on the date; any further details on when these might be from would be much welcomed!

Here you can see a former Hardee’s, and below is Mister Donut. (You can read more about that on my husband’s blog, Papergreat, in this excellent post.)

Then there’s Ernie McCall’s North Pole… which we’ve talked about OFTEN before on this blog, including here, here, here and here. If I understand correctly from other memories, this would have been in the area of what is now Route 30 and Sherman Street, is that correct?

Finally, I give you The Dog House, which is, of course, my kind of place (were it not closed before I was born!)

Steve, thank you so much for sharing – I can’t wait to see what memories these photos stir up.
