streets to get through Birmingham (no freeways yet, don'cha know.)
And speaking of Eastwood.........
Wow! Open 'till 10 PM! (seriously, that was a pretty big deal back in '65)
Thanks to a scrapbook that turned up in an Alabaster area antique

This Travel Inn restaurant was a regular "meeting place" with my grandparents some Saturdays when we lived behind the iron curtain in Mississippi, and Guin was about the halfway point between our house and Birmingham. It was just lunch at a motel, but for me that couple of hours were like a mini-Christmas.
The days when Buckworth was still

And the headache of your life trying to find out which station had your favorite NBC or CBS shows - 13 or 42?? Then hoping you'll be able to pick up a fringe signal of Channel 42, despite living next door to the transmitter.

"Stay tuned for Unknown, next on Channel 13!")
