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.

Say it isn't so.  The rumor mill seems to think the site might go away, due to lack of financial support from the enthusiasts and users?  Something about web hosting fees to keep the site operational?  Any truth to this notion?   Angry

The last bubbler I remember being installed was on 41st and Oklahoma ave. Right in front of Blessed Sacrament church. There was one there back in 60`s , but was taken out . Then around 1990 they put one back in. I thought it odd at the time, because all around the city they were taking them away, and here (around 1990) they were adding one. Too bad it only stayed there for a couple of years.
It was nice to know back when I was a kid riding my bike that every pary and playground had a bubbler to get cool drink from. Like I said in the first post, my favorite was 6th and Lincoln , because it ran all time , water was ice cold, and it bubbled straight up.

That's for sure, Bubblers everywhere. We were never thirsty for long riding our bikes around. And if we got a thirst for a soda we scanned the roadsides for abandoned soft drink bottles. They were deposit bottles back then and carried a bounty of a few pennies each. Before long we had an ice cold soda for our re-cycling efforts, ha!

There used to be BUBBLERS scatter all over Milwaukee when I was a kid. Wink
 The parks all had them, busy streets had them, but my favorite bubbler was on 6th and Lincoln ave. Wink
 It was huge.
 Three spouts that ran all the time so the water was ice cold. Tongue
Great on a hot day.  Tongue
AND, it was a real "bubbler". The water came bubbling straight up like a small fountain. Shocked

Tech guy here. Shocked I would swing by Villa Roma once in a while, but usually went through a tank a gas hitting the Big Boy`s. Smiley

 I always liked Villa Roma pizza. Thin crust as I remember. I was one of those Pulaski dudes.  Grin
