Cathy Free: Free Lunch: It's a sign of the times: spinning Sputnik and double-dip ice cream cone are important to history
Bray, who has also amassed a large collection of historical black-and-white Sugar House photos, regrets that she was never able to go ice-skating at Hygeia, eat lunch at the Pine Cone or shop for new school clothes at the old Keith O’ Brien department store.
“I would love to back to the 1940s and take a walk around,” she says. “Since about all we have left of that time are a few old signs, I’d love to hold on to them. Because once they disappear, there’s no going back.”
