Born and raised in Berks, I am fascinated by the style, design & culture of the mid-late 20th century. I started this website to research and build a collection of the places, things and stories I have heard about my entire life. Read more here.

  11. Not sure why it says opened in 1993? This rink opened in 1976! My Pizza Hut team won the 1st Cadet League championship & then I started my Temple Dairy Queen team in 1977 which went on to win Fteshman League & Senior ‘A’ League championshios until 1980 when I entered the Navy & moved to San Diego.

    Looking for about 20 years for pics of that fun place but no luck.
