Don`t recall those cottage motels, but
I do remember a cottage motel right on 27th and Morgan ave.
Southeast corner, behind Berka`s bar, across the street from one of the first McDonalds in Milwaukee.
Each room of the motel was actually a small one room cottage. Tongue

I'm a Northern California resident now, but was born (1954), grew up in, and worked in Milwaukee until 1999. Until, I'm thinking, the early 1960's, directly south of what is now (?) the Pick 'n Save (Then a small Cardinal or IGA store, I think) on about the 6600  block of S. 27th St., east side of 27th, there was a small motel, or perhaps cottages, on a small hill -- now part of the parking lot -- I recall perhaps 8 or 10 small white cottage-like units, arranged in a horseshoe, I think. What I most distinctly recall is that the property was surrounded by staghorn sumac bushes, bright red in late Summer/early Fall, which were not commonly found around there, and fascinated me as a little kid, because I usually only saw them camping in the Kettle Moraine -- Mauthe Lake, Long Lake.

This would not be the "Dreamland" motel/living units, and later Railroad Salvage store, associated with frmr. Franklin Mayor Fadrow. Other side of 27th...kind of directly across 27th.

WONDERFUL SITE, BTW. I stumbled on it a few months ago. I'd sure like to see a lot more of it! 

It's just a scene I  recall from my childhood, and for some reason I think of it sometimes.  Does anyone know what the name of this place was? Any photos?

 I am sure that there was an Arthur Treachers fish and chips at the corner or very near it.

Trying to find where this corner bar was located (circa 1968-73) and something about its history. Might have been on Brady St or somewhere else nearby on the East Side. Anyone remember it?

thanks for the info so far. The hunt is always the best part. The pencil lists 2 locations of 1711 W. Mitchell, phone MI 5-7108 and 1023 W. Mitchell, phone OR 2-0837. It's fun just saying the old phone numbers. Also the Antkowski article was a great read and very informative.

I remember SouthSide Sausage, but I don`t recall two locations on Mitchell street.

There was also a sausage shop on Lincoln ave.. I think it was between 13th and 14th street, on the southside of Lincoln ave.

If anyone wants to try some great sausage and meat now, try A J DELI on 12th and Lincoln ave. Tongue It will take you back to the good old days. Wink

Found a little info from 1977 (attached). Opened in 1917, closed in 1983. Do a Google search on Roman Antkowski (founder) for the complete story.

I have found an advertising bullet pencil from the South Side Sausage Co. in a box of goodies from my father in laws estate. It lists two locations on Mitchell St. I can't find any information on this business. I wonder if anyone remembers anything about it like, when it was in business, or what types of sausage they made and how good it was. I'm guessing from what I know of my father in laws history that it may be from the late 50's or early sixties. Post what you can or e-mail me at Thanks for your help. Dave
