It is a haunting melody - does anyone else remember this? My Dad had a print shop and then a Tavern (Barmann's Bar) on Atkinson Ave between 10th and 11th where Nash ends at Atkinson.

I skated at the Riverview Roller Rink on the east side.

I loved walking into the Sears-Roebuck store on Forest Home Ave and the smell of the roasted nuts and the noise of the vacuum cleaner demo being run right across from the roasted nuts.
