    brecksville rd was sr21 (still is up by the turnpike and north), which is what I 77 followed when built. with richfield being about half way between cleveland and akron, the restaurant and gas station made sense.

    The boarded up part was known as the round room. Where all the doughnuts were, and the fatboys hung out.

    Ahhhh, the good old days, where every locker had a fith of gin, dockworkers wore clean chinos, and you needed a wheel barrow to bring home your check

    I thought the "round room" was where the "mis-behaving" freight haulers were sent to stand in the corner. I know I have done my time standing in TIME-OUT .:hide:

    that's the one i was thinking of. thanx. my guess is we'll be the last. when our lease is up we'll go somewhere bigger, then an office building will go up there.
