My dad used to take my sister, brother and I to get soda there. Glen Rock soda company was in a smaller shopping center on N.76th and Hampton Ave. I remember you had to go to the back of the center to get to the entrance. You would grab a cart and a wooden crate and walk around to pick out different flavors of soda. My favorites were Lime, Grape, and Orange but they also had flavors like Pineapple and Strawberry. They made great ice cream sodas. A crate of soda would last us for a couple of months.

Anybody know anything about these artists?  I have a couple of paintings, purchased in Milwaukee about 40 years ago.  One is a scene by Marlo D. Cain.  The other is a floral, by Marion Conant.  I believe these paintings were purchased directly from the artists, at a local art fair.

          Does anybody out there remember TaTa Ryby (father fish.  Does anybody know anything about him besides he wore black, had a long beard, had a cigar and a baseball team named after him, was in parades on Lincoln Avenue, and would walk thru Kosciuszko Park a lot?   I am working with an anthropologist who wants to do a story and a play on him.  This guy was a Lincoln Ave, Kosciuszko park icon in the 40's and 50's.  Everybody in the Kosciuszko Park area remembers him,,but,,,no one knows his name, where he lived,worked, how he got the name Tata Ryby.  I have run dry on leads to follow.  Please help.   Tom Kondrakiewicz   tommyk@milwpc.com.

I thought Franseca`s was right on KK and Oklahoma. Having a Oklahoma ave. address. I know there was a pizza place just north of Oklahoma on KK that started with a "P" in it`s name. An Italian name.

Hi,

 I will take a stab at this. Was it a place called Francesa's? Or something similar.

 I used to live on Idaho and Nevada in the mid 80's for about 5 years. KK & Oklahoma were walking distance from my home. I seem to recall something like that before the pizza hut. I really liked that area back then. It was blue collar cool. I think some of the KK area is a little hipster doofus now if I am correct.

The 1962 City Directory shows 3133 as Muzzy's Tap. May have been part of the parcel that is now 3131?

Hi, a Pizza Hut is now at this address. But years ago (1970 and earlier), I recall the property held a big white stone building. Anyone know what it was? I heard it was a bowling alley.
