More Milwaukee Memories Page 9
Wow, I actually saw a few things on your Site that I'd
forgotten about, and I usually pride myself on remembering everything!
Here are just a couple of my Milwaukee pictures:
Someone asked about Pate gas stations- this station was located at 60th and Oklahoma (NW corner), just a few blocks from my home.
Behind it is Kubiaks drug store. This was probably taken in the late 1950s.
This is me with my cousin Felice at the Kiddieland amusement park at Capitol Court in 1958.
Or was it KiddieTown? Southgate had one, Capitol Court had the other.
enjoying reading your website.
"They say she gets her clothes at The Grand"
How can you forget that wonderful store?
My husband Pierce Rosenberg president of 'The Grand' made it the talk of the country.
He was a philanthropist and very prominent in civic affairs. It saddens me that he is forgotten. Please look up his obituary.
'The Grand' was purchased by Best and company of New York. My husband was vice president of Best and Co. when he passed away in 1966. They then closed all of the stores because they had hoped that he would be pres. of them all. We didn't want to leave Milwaukee. :-(
I have many fond memories. My 2 children
Nancy and Robert Pierce were born in Milwaukee. We lived in Fox
Point. Our lives are very interesting and busy as it always has
been. As a digital artist my art keeps me very busy.
