Where are we going for dinner tonight?  How about The Stockholm restaurant in Detroit?  Opened in 1939, this was a family restaurant featuring a Swedish Smorgasbord, a buffet table laden with the delicious food you see here.  The restaurant was one of Detroit's finest, and it was open until 1962.  Then, the place was sold, and a Playboy Club opened up in the same location.  Now?  There's a windowless brick building on the site that houses telecommunications equipment.

Last Pool Parties of Summer

Already it's starting to feel a little bit cooler here in Connecticut.  The summer weather will be over soon. But let's celebrate the last of the good weather at the pool parties at the Concord Resort and the Pines, both in the Catskills, circa 1960's!
