Street Scenes Follow-Up: Still In Sterling


Remember CC’s Street Scenes series? I fully intend to do more of these posts of mid-1980s bars, taverns and restaurants (and our main interest, the cars parked out front), but it keeps getting put on the back burner. But I have to share the fact that I personally visited one of these locations last Friday.

The original picture was taken on January 24, 1986. On September 13, 2013 these pictures were taken. Sadly, the slantback Olds was nowhere in evidence, but the restaurant is still there!

And so is the sign, and the fake-pagoda style roof! One of these days I’ll need to stop in and try their board of fare. I mean, if they’ve been in business for at least 27 years, the food’s got to be good, right?

For those readers who have found CC more recently, below are links to all of the Street Scenes posts I’ve done so far. And never fear, for more vintage shots of ’70s and ’80s CCs will be coming. Stay tuned…
