Following are three current-day pictures:
Before one of my readers (see yesterday's post) and I left the parking lot for the Frosty Boy, he spoke about three buildings that used to exist on the north side of West Grand River. The car wash (above) at the northwest corner of Detroit and West Grand River used to have a drive-in restaurant called the Red Diamond. It was owned by one of my reader's sisters, Marion Nichols. Originally, it was a spring, summer, and fall restaurant but eventually a portion was added onto the building for indoor seating.
At the northeast corner -- across Detroit Street -- an empty building now stands that used to house the Keg and Cork. At one time, a gas station stood at this corner. Does anyone remember what kind of fuel might have been sold there?
