Wow! If I’m not mistaken, that’s the one on State Street, and my dad took me there a few times in the early 1970′s. Nice find.
First to post here ! ……Woopie…..
What is oddest about this for me is that my family moved to Salem in 1988, when I was 9 years old. To me, that doesn’t seem that long ago, and while a few things have changed since then, I still think of Salem as pretty much the same as it was then.
But just in terms of time, that was 25 years ago, and this picture was taken 23 years before that. So Salem of 1965 is closer to Salem of 1988 then it is to Salem of today!
