Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated green card covers, lettered in black. "Do you remember those days not so very long ago about a place where you could drop in to share a sundae or banana split with your friends, or gather after a movie or skating and listen to the jukebox and dance to the latest musk of the day? Remember a place with pinball machines, fabulous hamburgers and Twilight Hour, and the opportunity to check out that latest cute girl or handsome lad. That place was called The Palms and was owned and operated by Cecil Young's family for over fifty years (1920-72). But this story is also about more than that It is about growing up in small town Wolfville in that relatively peaceful era following World War II the era of the "fabulous fifties". Do you remember Wolfville High School, the duck pond, the train station, the Lion's Youth Center, Saturday matinees, the Wolfviile Falcons, and... more. Even if all this doesn't ring a memory bell in your mind, you will enjoy this nostalgic and sometimes humourous look at life in "a simpler time". " (from the back cover). Contents : Introduction.
