This is amazing..Brought back so many memories. I worked at the Hotel Rubidoux in the late 50s, my wedding reception was held there. I remember Les Leighti and Jack Miller and the whole crowd.

It is very sad that the city has not done more to save and keep up the old buildings in this historic town. St Joe was the true gateway to the west and should reflect that.

Sad but some good memories from the past.

Really enjoyed looking over all the manufacturing plants St Joseph had in the past. Our town was really flourishing with such production and growth! Looking back on how it was, makes me sad on what it is now.☹️

This is so nice to see the things the amusement park had. There are a lot of memories brought back as I reflected on this. Wish my kids could've had this experience.

I remember my 8th grade field trip to the amusement park, and this brought back a lot of fond memories.

Thanks for all you've done here. I lived in St Joe for the first 20 years of my life.Went to Pershing,Robidoux Middle,Lafayette (81)and Mo Western before enlisting in the Navy (83) and been gone ever since. I grew up on n end on county line rd. C&NW bordered my parents chilh hood home. I was sad to see the tracks go in '84. I love trains and St Joe in its day was a good small rr town with plenty of industries there. Once the railroad left the jobs went with it. Today St Joe is a mere shadow of itself in comparison to 50s,60,s and up to early 80s.Belt HWY really grew but no real stable jobs just a bunch of retailers and restaurants.

Thank you .I found out 60 years after my Grandad's death that he travelled to St. Joseph to W.T.Letts , who I have discovered was his first wife's uncle , in 1907 from England. As my Grandad was a master carpenter it appears he went there to work . Interesting to see anything connected with W.T.Letts and St.Joseph as I knew nothing about his adventure .

Sorry, what I meant to say in regard to the trolley coach photo is I couldn't figure it out WITHOUT locating the Fogarty Hardware store on your website.
Thanks again.

Photo #5 of your South Park Trolley-Coach photos actually shows trolley coach #264 is going eastbound on Mitchell at 9th St. because the former Fogarty Hardware store was on the southeast corner of 9th & Mitchell. Of course I wouldn't have been able to figure it out locating the Fogarty Hard- ware store on your website. Thanks.

I lived in St. Joseph for nearly a year in 1960-61 with my brother and his family and graduated from Central H.S. in 1961. I didn't arrive until about a month after the school year had started and don't know whether I'm in the Yearbook or not. It sad to see that Clifford Dale Stone has passed away. Dale was my best friend at Central and we also worked together part-time at Shaffer News on Frederick Ave. Thanks for bringing back many good memories.
