  1. Used to be a window painting contest for Halloween in Maplewood. I think it was sponsored by The Observer. (I delivered them as a kid).
    I won a prize one year.
    Back in the ’50s.

    • Yes, I remember the Halloween window painting contest. I was chosen to paint one, it was late 60’s or very early 70’s. I didn’t win a prize, but was honored to be chosen to paint one of the windows.

  2. Lived on 7200 block of Manchester above Cook’s Paint during the 60’s. Would love to see some pictures of that store back then. Walked to the newspaper and tobacco store every afternoon to pick up a newspaper.
