Two weeks ago, I aggregate four Ask Joan questions – about a appliance store, a school, a drive-in restaurant and an ice-cream shop. Last week, I followed up on that drive-in, which was Huntley’s, and promised to accouterment the added three capacity today.
1. Leinhardt Bros. appliance store
2. Garfield School
3. Blooming Top ice-cream shop
First off today, I’d like to allocution about a appliance abundance brought up by a clairvoyant called Craig in the cavalcade from two weeks past. Craig wrote that he acclimated to drive a barter for the abundance in the backward 1960s, and recalled it actuality east of Newberry Artery on Market Street. I heard two specific sets of answers, so I’ll allotment both as able-bodied as my thoughts!
Kicking off the aboriginal set of answers, Linda Seligson, who formed with me at the YDR for abounding years, recalled it as Leinhardt’s Furniture.
Bev recalled it as Leinhardt’s or Leinhardt Bros. (“I anticipate it’s a austerity abundance now,” she said.) Mary Jane Kessler aggregate the affect about the austerity abundance actuality there now, and added, “We bought all our appliance there back we got married.”
Bruce Musser pinpointed it on the arctic ancillary of Market Street, aloof afore the Vigilant Firehouse.
And Charles Ehrman wrote, “The abundance was in business for abounding years. The brothers were acceptable accompany of my grandfather. I’m not assertive what all the names were, or how many. If my anamnesis serves me accurately one was called Louis; addition I acquire was Maurice, which was additionally my grandfather’s aboriginal name. I anamnesis that one of the brothers was a abiding accommodating at the old West Ancillary Osteopathic Hospital abutting to the fairgrounds on West Market Street. They additionally had a abundance on Baltimore Artery in Hanover. This abundance was area my wife and I purchased best of our accoutrement for our aboriginal accommodation back we affiliated in 1959.”
You can additionally apprehend a bit added about Leinhardt on Papergreat, authored by the amazing Chris Otto. In his post, Chris talks about the years the abundance was in business and its moniker of “The Friendly Store.” (Check out Chris’ cavalcade by visiting www.yorkblog.com/onlyyork/leinhardt.)
But wait, I said there were two names put forth. Two bodies wrote with addition suggestion.
Jim Shindler said, “I acquire the appliance abundance Craig referenced was Shive’s Appliance Store.”
Janet Smith also agreed. “Shive’s Appliance abundance was at 149-155 W. Market St., aloof up the Artery from the Plough Tavern,” she wrote. “When I got affiliated in 1966, we bought our bedchamber and active allowance appliance there. Three years later, back we bought a house, we added the dining allowance furniture. I’m still application best of it. The active allowance chairs and the mattress and box bounce are the alone things we replaced.”
If that’s the actual area for Shive’s, I anticipate it and Leinhardt’s were at altered locations. Leinhardt’s was declared as actual abreast the Vigilant Fire Company, which is addition block or so out on West Market.
You can apprehend added about Shive’s, which operated at 155 W. Market St. (later the home of the now-closed but actual air-conditioned CoWork 155) from 1955 to 1982, at www.yorkblog.com/onlyyork/shives.
Also in that cavalcade two weeks ago, a clairvoyant called Greg asked if anyone had memories to allotment of the above Garfield Academy in York.
Reader Mike Eppley was able to allotment abounding details!
Mike wrote, “I acquire addicted memories of my bristles years there through 1959, back Ferguson again opened. The academy was amid on Arctic Penn Artery amid Smyser and Arctic streets, aloof arctic of the railroad tracks. It was a two-story brick architecture with three angled entrances, two admirable staircases central arch to the additional floor. I anamnesis lots of woodwork trim (oak, I believe). There were alpine angled windows that opened at the top on warmer canicule by application a connected board pole with a angle at the end. Several window panes were absent to a pole that was acclimated a bit too aggressively by the students.”
He continued, “Pat Nagle had a bonbon abundance beyond Penn Artery that awash penny bonbon and Smittie’s bendable pretzels afore school. The agents were all committed and acceptable to the kids. Mr. Gable was the arch and a few of the others I bethink are Ms. Swartz, Ms. Cox, Ms. Harries, Ms. Rowe, Mr. Phillips, Ms. Wamback (sp?)… There was additionally a chic for those with austere appropriate needs (cerebral attached and others) led by a actual acceptable and accommodating abecedary whose name I don’t recall.”
He concluded, “I confused to Ferguson for sixth brand in the abatement of 1959. The new academy was nice, but best of us admired the Garfield architecture better.”
Reader W. Gross had capital to apperceive if anyone recalled the Blooming Top ice-cream shop.
Longtime clairvoyant and ancestors acquaintance Nancy Lipschutz wrote, “The Blooming Top was amid on the southeast bend of Springdale Road and South Queen Street. I acquire there was a conical bronze with a blooming on top alfresco the store. Anticipate it was a sundae with a blooming on top. Unfortunately I was never central the store. I still canyon it all the time.”
Within a day, she wrote and added, “Passed the Blooming Top today. The architecture seems … little changed. The bank which was the sundae is still there but covered with greenery. Maybe addition could apple-pie it up and disclose the sundae aloof for old times sake.”
I told her maybe that could be my abutting activity – sundae apology specialist!
Fellow Yorkblogger Stephen H. Smith additionally wrote to me about this location. He said, “I bethink the Blooming Top ice chrism place, on South Queen Street, as the aboriginal accessible abode area I could see clearly; I had aloof gotten my aboriginal eyeglasses about beyond the artery at my eye doctor’s place. The Blooming Top was on the southeast bend of South Queen Artery and Springdale Avenue. My fourth-grade teacher, Mrs. Shook, appropriate that I ability charge eyeglasses during the 1959-1960 academy year. I had my eyes arrested by Dr. McHenry. Springdale Opticians was amid in McHenry’s offices. Right afterwards I got my glasses, my mom appropriate we airing beyond the artery to get some ice chrism at the Blooming Top.”
He concluded, “I had never absolutely anticipation about that abode until I saw the catechism in your column, but now was curious. A chase in old newspapers reveals Blooming Top was amid at 1001 S. Queen St. from the mid-1930s until the aboriginal 1960s.”
I’m animated we acquire so abundant advice on all of these capacity now. Thanks to all who wrote in for your input!
