The clock's a giveaway for us Ardmore Ancients.

I knew I should have opted for the harder photo of this spot! Do any of you recognize these businesses, or were they long gone by the time you "Ancients" were born? ;)

The Breyer's Ice Cream leaf was everywhere growing up in Wynnewood. My folks drove us mostly down the main drag (Lancaster Avenue). I don't remember ever going down Mud Lane (Cricket Avenue) as a kid.

How old is "Ancient"? My father commuted on the Paoli Local every day into the city and there was nothing but an open field between our house on Clover Hill Road and the Wynnewood train station, where the Shopping Center now stands. Hey, it's waaay past my bedtime.
