1940': THE PLAAG'S GROVE OF MY YOUTH
The Times has a large circulation with many readers. Recently, I wrote a "Sentimental Journey" column relating to my experiences at Plaag's Grove when I was a boy. There will be more Plaag's Grove articles in the near future. I have received MANY emails and verbal queries as to the location of Plaag's Grove, as many of the younger generation were not aware that it existed. The photo above shows the entrance with the ticket booth in the foreground. It was unchanged during the 1940's. The photo below was taken by my best buddy, Don Slabicki back in the 40's. It was taken from the second floor of his 914 Sylvan Avenue home. I have personalized it with identifying labels.
