Hi all. I am interested in the picture of the Kimo theatre. Was that at 4th and Central? My mother used to work at the Coney Island Cafe at 4th and Central. It would be right next to the black lamp post on the right edge of the picture or painting. These discussions are bringing back many memories of growing up in Albuquerque. Very cool.

Can anyone help me out? i am trying to find posters of the paintings of the Sandia and possibly Manzano Mts. that are or were in the airport. I do not recall the artist but I need some memories of home here in Misseryoui. Thanks

Akira, if you haven't already contacted them, maybe the Albuquerque Museum would have info. Or maybe Cultural Services at City Hall

San Gabriel had the best keggers and cruising! Does anybody remember the Zodiac club in Barelas -corner of 4th & Bridge? It was across the street from El Cambio's grocery store. I lived next to the store on Simpier Lane.

You forgot Sandia Base, now Kirtland AFB. Yes, I am an army brat. Folks ended up retiring here in Abq. Lucky for me. I remember when Montgomery Blvd. was a dirt road, Uncle Cliff's was waaaay out in the boon-docks and Rio Ranch was just a developers dream.

Anybody remember this? "And the picture on the wall!" Hub furniture going out of business for about 4 years.

Hey, can any one tell me where the shopping center with the giant arrow in the parking lot was? My mother had a very good friend that lived a few blocks from there, but I can't remember where this shopping center was...thanks!

It was rumored that high school seniors used to steal that big red arrow as a prank.
