I have such fond memories of it. DO you know of a resource that might help? Thank you! Frank Lehman June 17, 2017 at 1:40 pm 2 years ago Reply I just discovered the “Toledo History Box” web site. All sorts of interesting things. One of them is an article about not longer existing restaurants from Toledo. One is the Ted’s Hamburgers at Monroe and Erie. What you did not point out is that right across the street (ie. across Erie St) is an establishment I remember going past so many times when going downtown on The Trail and then coming in on Erie St–the “Scenic Bar.” You can clearly see the sign in the picture. Do you remember that the Scenic Bar was the “Gay Bar” in Toledo? At least among my acquaintances when going to high school in the 1950″s, it was the only gay establishment in Toledo.

It was run by my uncle’s (he is 93 and lives in the St Louis area) family. Would love to see if the building still stands. Paula Wethington July 4, 2017 at 12:52 pm 2 years ago Reply I came across this site when doing a search for the date of the founding of Franklin Park Mall. Your crossreference of memories with historical records in cities we have lived in is how I have saved and passed on quite a few stories for my family; but I really didn’t have much information about the stories we’d be interested in from Toledo. I’ve enjoyed looking through the archives and am sharing your link with my family! Lizzie H. + Others December 5, 2017 at 2:20 pm 2 years ago Reply Hello! Searching for any and all information on Carlo Sommer. We dug ourselves deep into this rabbit hole, and any leads or contacts would be amazingly helpful. Rosa Loughnane March 1, 2018 at 11:34 am 2 years ago Reply Hi! I’m going crazy trying to find an old photo of Captain Billy’s Wizzbang, with the hammer head shark outside; I found a recent one, sans shark. It’s a very special memory for someone and I’m trying to surprise him. Any leads would help! THANKS!

David L Harmon May 24, 2018 at 8:24 am 1 year ago Reply I have just discovered an article on the Toledo History Box website entitled ‘Toledo’s New Union Station Opens’ dated July 21, 2017. May I have the name of the author of this article? Bob Campbell October 9, 2018 at 11:15 pm 1 year ago Reply Can anyone help my wife remember the name of the Mexican restaurant that was on Emerald Avenue in Toledo? Sometime in the mid to late seventies. STEPHEN SMITH October 31, 2018 at 8:19 am 12 months ago Reply Hello My father was born in Toledo. He has just passed away at 99 years old. He was a WWII pilot and loved aviation his whole life. In his records we found a membership card to The Toledo News Bee Squadron Junior Aviator Membership Card. It is signed by Al Williams. Any idea what year this would be. Thanks Steve Smith Commerce, Mi Steve W. January 31, 2019 at 11:02 am 9 months ago Reply Awesome website!

I remember after 2000 they tore the building down. Any idea? thanks gin Jim Antoine October 7, 2019 at 3:16 am 1 week ago Reply Raised near Woodward H.S (Brigham & Ketcham) in the 60s, 70s and 80s down the street from Angelo’s on Stickney. Between Angelo’s Restaurant, Shakey’s (player piano) Pizza, Gino’s (Colony), Elbow Room and Dominic’s Italian… As far as I’m concerned, I grew up eating the finest pizzas in the world. Incidentally, would any of you have the recipes for Angelo’s (rectangular) pizza and Dominic’s light and crunchy pizza? The crust recipes at least.
