  1. Ah yes, Lakehead Auto Imports–the VW Dealership, now “Kolar’s Car Kingdom” and The Sunrise Motel, now Menards. No more Attic? Another nail in the DNT Coffin?

  2. 15 years ago I used to wonder why the Chalet never updated anything. Now when I go there I appreciate the fact that it is the same more every time.

    I remember when the Holiday Gas stations sold cheap bicycles out front. They made Huffy bikes look like Cadillacs.

  3. I love how the Chalet sign hasn’t changed in 30 years! (which is the only thing I recognize in this photo from the year of my birth)
