Correct, Ziggy's. Formally Tips I believe was at 1313 Broadway a couple houses from the corner of 12th. Lucky 13 used to be Shilliingers @ 13th & 7th

Your right Bob, I remember my mom telling me that Ziggy's use to be called Tips, and the Lucky 13 was called by the name that you mentioned ( that was way before my time, Lol ).

I'm older than you guys. (Class of '62)  When I was about 8 years old it was called "Tippy's Tavern."  After that it was called "Little Joe's" and then I went away to college.  What happned after that, I have no idea.

I used to live right across the street from (what we called) Tippy's.  It could have been Tip's.  I lived there from appx 1953 - 1966.  I used to cut through the alley between Tippy's and Jacky Costello' house to get to anything on West side of the city.

Hi,

I'm changing the subject of Pubs for a moment.  I've been wondering...is there a plan to add yearbook photos to the class lists?  I think many of us remember names, but may be having difficulty putting a face to that name.  Yearbook photos would be most helpful.  It may lead to grads submitting more recent photos...a great way to keep in touch.

Thanks,

Kathi (Murphy) Fredette - Class of 1961

Was it the Lucky Seven?

Kathi,

It's a great idea to add yearbook photos to the names.  I think one of the difficulties is the tremendous amount of time and effort to a. get all the yearbooks; b. take photos of all graduates, and c. insert each into individual profiles.  Along with this it's probably a good idea to get permission from each person.  There are over 9000 alumni names that have been included on the alumni website.  If we can get more help it may be possible.  Again, it's a wonderful idea.

Mr C. I would be willing to help with task.

Thanks for volunteering to help, Cathy.  I'll talk to the other administrators and get back to you.  We all appreciate the offer and certainly can use some help.  Happy Holidays.

From the desk of "what it's worth department: I think it's a good idea. ..

Bob....Why not ask everyone on this site to submit their own senior photo....if they have one...that way the administrators won't have to search all those yearbooks for the photos. I don't know how that will work out either....to add the photo next to the person's name....but I think that will save a lot of searching.

Robert Christiansen (1963)

Great idea, Rob.  Maybe you can reinforce that idea on FB.  Put on a statement getting folks to use the website, updating their profile and adding photos.  I'll do the same.   At least it's a start.

So are you back in Vliet for good?   Maybe we can get together to discuss some ideas to get the website used more.

across from RR restaurant on Broadway was Carmen Goody's car sales.  My dad worked there and we lived upstairs.  Also Brownie's motorcycle shop was next to Schillingers.

Joann - I remember Carmen Goody's and also your dad.  I also remember when you lived upstairs.  There was one of the original Stewarts stores just down from the auto dealership.  Loved their make-your-own sundaes.  I believe Carmen Goody sold Plymouth/DeSotos

When we missed the school bus, we walked down 19th Street, and caught the Albany, Troy, Watervliet bus right in front of the RR&S.  Quite a long walk down that hill!!

Alison Reid (Sherwood) (1967)

Living in Port Schyler had its good points however the downfall was missing the bus (agree Patricia) especially on a snowy cold day- in those days we had to wear skirts.   Many frost bite days on my knees- they still feel the cold and carrying your books (no backpack then).  It was a long walk up and down.  Of course in the summer I walked from home to school to play tennis or hang out and did not mind.

If you missed the bus at the school, why didn't you catch the 12th Avenue bus and transfer to the ATW at Broadway?
