The first is a post bowling match gathering at Straub's Bar. Then we have one of the regulars, and third is a New Year's party! 6 bottles of beer for a buck!?!?!?

Bowling, smoking, much more 60s can you get than that!

Note the Utica Club six price $1.25, and three quarts of Valley Forge for a buck!!!!

    The lady in the third photo looks like she is being held at

    Thanks, walksoftly....

    My Father took the center picture....he was pretty creative, and I think that if he had the opportunity, he could have found himself in a job in one of the arts... Maybe I should submit that photo for him in a contemporary photo contest!

    Re: the lady in the are right, she does look like she's "under the gun"! There are a few other photos of her that I have found, and in those she looks "stressed" too. I'll have to show that photo to my older sister, maybe she can clarify this for us!!!

    I love old photos, you can't stop your imagination from trying to wrap a story around the image.
    I think the cool guy is an undercover cop who's trying to keep his identity hidden, even what can see of his features is hard to read.

    Thanks for the love and for the comments, Bellin...

    The original slides are from the late 50s, early sixties, and I am surprised and elated that they have held up so well over the years!

    Yeah, walksoftly....I remember that guy well, even though i was quite young. He was sort of a sharpie, and all of the kids looked up to him. Not a bad guy, though.

    And true, seeing such old pictures does stir one's imagination! It would be neat to compare our imagined stories with someone who was actually there at the time...just to see if our ideas were correct....better yet, to find out the actual story!!!

    Hi, eye4beauty...thanks for your love on these photos, and for your thoughtful comment. This is unbelievable in contemporary times, but my parents bar didn't even have a regular phone to summon the lads home!

    The wives would show in person, looking for their husbands. Such quaint anachronisms (among other things) were the things that characterized neighborhood bars back in the day!

    Yikes, your question really did jog my memory re: "the old days"!!!!!

    Thank you, nutsabota…your love and comments are appreciated!

    I am glad that these images have recalled good days for you!

    Have a good day….Ted

    Good morning, eye4beauty! Ha, ha… phone there until about the early seventies!

    The bar had a generic name, "Straub's Cafe"… but my aunt worked at a place at the corner of Abbot Rd. and Dash St. in Buffalo, which was called, fittingly enough, The Dash Inn. As kids we would say…"Dash Inn, and stagger out!"

    Thank you for your much appreciated input…..Ted

    Ooops...the guy your father took a picture of.....

    Remember when men used to wear crisp, white shirts and ties back in the day? Ladies wore nice skirts or a dress and everyone had manners.

    Great picture! Thanks for sharing.

    Thank you, Mother_Earth for the love and for your kind comments.

    Yes, times have changed, and not necessarily for the better :(
