I hope this is alright to bring up a long ago thread. I just got back from a long 'vacation' from the site.
The video links I posted are still active. In fact I sent the Al Angelo video link to Frankford HS, and the principle got back to me and said the alumni were really enjoying it.
Some good footage of the Sea Rose Motel is also in there.
 
I'll double check the links when I get a chance.

Some 40 yrs. ago the owner's son in the house I stayed in for the summer worked very late at A&LP and would sometimes bring home plenty of leftover pizza and leave it for the guys on our floor.....I was closest to the stash......no worries then about a lukewarm slice at 3 a.m. or having it for breakfast! Another guy worked the night shift at the Terminal Bakery on 17th & Central and would crash out covered in flour and smelling of baked goods (better in his case) and brought home all the donuts that weren't properly shaped or filled.

 
Ahhhh, A&LP, been too long since I walked in their door,  along with Russo's the best. IMHO anyway.
 
My Uncle Doc, who built the Isle of Capri, he used to bring the same "sacks" home form the bakeries too.
He had "connections. "  :-D

I know it's a pretty general question, but I've been away for a number of years.
No more, I'm tired at being angry with Wildwood. Angry since 2004 when they took my summer home away from me, The Sea Rose Motel.
 
Is The Chateau Bleu still nice? I watched them build it BTW.
 
Thanks
 
Fred

Hey FlyinGN,  
 
It's been too long since I've been here. Did you ever find out if my Mother was right, when she told me Johnson's started in Wildwood?
They were beside the Starlight.

Heard about it but haven't read about it yet. Isn't there some talk about possible renaming the ride this year?
