ANOTHER TOPIC I HAPPEN TO LOVE - KIRKWOOD ARCHITECTURE - SOMEWHERE SPECIAL
unique layout of the setting. Now of course it's gone, but classmate Roxie Guels Rassi sent me this article recently and I can't resist....but I will also tell you, at the Museum of Transport in Kirkwood, you know right on Barrett Station Road south of Big Bend, you can see a part of the facade rebuilt. It is nestled in the room with some very cool cars which are not-to-be-missed features of the Museum. While you are in town, a trip there will be mind-blowing ~ it's grown SO much since our childhood. Our classmates Dave Beardsley and Bob O'Neill give abundant time as volunteers there, Bob's having been at it for over 50 years!!! And now we've roped in my hubby Jack. My son automated their Friends database while he was still in High School.... I remember going there with my dad as a child. And NO, I did not smooch in the train tunnel but I know some of our classmates did! At any rate, Coral Courts Motel was a landmark in Kirkwood for a long time...and I love asking our classmates, "Do YOU have a Coral Courts story?" Thanks again Rox for the memories....
