1956 OLYMPIAN - Ads

Making light of someone with a mask and gun is probably taboo in school yearbooks these days of Zero Tolerance.

This picture of the interior of the upstairs of the American Legion was taken about 54 years ago. As much as I can tell, it looks about the same as it did last week.

I remember when the Cobb Exchange Bank was being built. I lived on Austin Ave a short distance from the bank. Sarge Houston and I liked to walk through the uncompleted building in the evening after the workers had left. There was an underground tunnel between the drive through island and the main bank. We'd go through the tunnel into the drive through.

Who'd have thought they'd bring back pneumatic tubes. They'd from the 20's or earlier.

Speaking of that bank, underground tunnels, and robbing banks, do you remember when a tunnel was dug from the building across the street, under Roswell Street and into that bank to rob the place at night? I forgot the details but I don't think they got caught. It reminds me of Woody Allen's movie "SMALL TIME CROOKS".

I do remember that. Only found one place online that showed it and it's from an Ocala newspaper, From April 23, 1974, only a picture of a police office coming out of the tunnel. Says the robbers got little money.

Thanks again Mike,

As I said to you in email I forgot about the tunnel robbery until you mentioned a tunnel. I thought you also mentioned the street, but I must have wrong.

This will call for another blog post.
