WHERE WAS THE LEMON TREE RESTAURANT?
How many times, while wandering Winslow Way, have you asked yourself or your friends, "What ever happened to Fortner Books?" or The Martinique? or Roberts Jewelers? or whatever used to be your favorite store or restaurant? Or tried to remember what was in a particular storefront before its current tenant opened its doors?
Help us develop a family tree of the many storefronts that have graced Winslow Way throughout its history.
We're starting with the main drag: the north and south sides of Winslow Way E. from its intersection with Madison Ave. to Highway 305.
To contribute, first take a look at the archive tools in the right hand column, which include partially completed inventories and maps of the existing buildings.
Then just email us, using the form to the right, with any details you can recall - business or store names, dates, addresses, owners and staff, anecdotes and memories - to help us fill in the blanks. Let us know, also, if you can supply any photos.
Thanks for your assistance!
