Hello all, These are all great memories for me as well. I was born in 53 in Milwaukee. I remember the Xmas parade on Mitchell St. After that we would go to Shusters Dept. store and look at the store front windows to see all the animated displays including all the model train layouts,very similar to the Xmas story movie. Oh yeah,,,, my favorate cartoons were Heckyl and jeckyl,Gandy Goose,Ruff and Reddy. I still play with my model trains at Xmas!!
