1947: Circa 1947 Carlin's Cafe
If you go to the "SEARCH BLOG" area on the upper left of this blog and key in FOY, you will find a former post on this legendary family and their Drug Store and old fashioned soda fountain as it was back in the golden era of the 40's and 50's. I and my buddies made many stops at that great old place on South Broad Street. Eleanor Foy was a lady whom I am proud to say was a friend of mine from her many years as a local civic minded citizen. When she lost her beloved Donald, she told me she wanted to be sure he was remembered in Hamilton, and he has been. Thanks to Eleanor and her family, many of Don's memorable history items are being preserved and digitized in the Local History Collection.
