We were around W of M back then. Played Lowell on the common many times. I wonder if people on this board would be surprised to know that we used to stay open all night the night before the 4th. That's right, we opened on July 3rd and didn't close until late July 4th.
You and I are the same age. Bet I've seen you somewhere.

there was a machine in the middle of the joint and the potato's came down a endless conveyer chain with paddles on it but first in the back we had a peeler and then cut them into the water and then paddle cups would bring them up out of the water and drop them into the grease and then the convayer chain with the paddles would bring them out the front and across the back of the trailer we had three fryers for backup when we got busy its to bad it burnt in that warehouse fire
