Check out the unpaved path out here by where the entrance to Wilson's Farm is now!

Notice that it is the "crossroads" pottery shop in the heart of midtown. This is the location presently of I believe a drawing/painting store, previously it was a jewelry store, and before that, cut glass, and before that I believe a tinsmith/pewter craftsmen, and then the pottery shop. I love that memories of this place. Including the old kiln chimney that is still outside of the store!

The Entrance to Marvel Cave Park. The Office can be seen in the background behind the covered wagon.

No, Unfortunately I do not know who the couple is. I could make up a nice story kind of like "You add the caption!" contests, but I will not subject you all to that here on Rube's Wayback Machine because we have more stops to make! Moving onward, or should I say backwards to the mid eighties...

Me, StlPhotogal, and Shad Heller. Unfortunately many visitors to the park have either never known, or have forgotten who Shad Heller is. If you get a chance pick up a copy of "SHAD" a biography of Lloyd "Shad" Heller. It is a good read for the SDC fan.
Not advertising certain websites, but Amazon has many used books...Here is a link if you are interested:

 Having met and talked with Shad on several occasions as a child, it was like meeting a movie star.

Wow, Rube... that's special!

I met and talked with Shad, but I never had my picture made with him. I admit being a little snobbish, because the "blacksmith shop" was cranking out aluminum castings, rather than real iron works. (Still does, from what I could tell on our June visit.)

Rube's Wayback Machine Destination... 1977, the year of the blockbuster movies Star Wars, Saturday Night Fever, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Smokey and the Bandit. I miss these photos, but not the clothing! My parents always would tell me that they would take these photos to know who they were looking for in the cave if someone got lost (I am unsure if this is true or not to this day!). I had no clue they were also trying to find out the number of people able to fit in the train to exit the cave. I especially like the barefoot kid in the front row...so many steps to take in a cave without shoes on!

^I miss those photos too!  It's great to look back and see who toured the cave with you so many years ago.  Sometimes I find myself wondering what those people are doing now...

I love this idea!  It would be a lot of fun.

BTW, who's the happy guy in the front carrying a purse?  Is he with you?

the Murse? (Man-Purse)- nope don't know him! I do think however, that the man in the exact center is the one who wins the award for the Best Polyester Or Cotton Navajo Tribe Print Shirt Of The Day (The BPOCNTPSOTD Award for those of you not on the Polyester shirt circuit or the "shirtcuit")

Yes I know I talked about a photo/ item per day, during the week, but I have been on  a break for a week now, and I nearly got everything done I wanted (except a visit to the city) Here is an item to make up for my absence of posting! Wayback Machine set for pre 1960. If you have been on the lantern tour then you definitely have heard this name... I purchased this at auction for just a few bucks from what I remember a few years back.
