Clark super 100 gasoline, Thousands know it's best, The largest selling independent gasoline In the middle west.Fill up today, you'll see just what we mean With Clark super 100 gasoline...When you were thirsty, you asked where the nearest "bubbler" was. West of Calhoun Road on the south side of Bluemound was a wonderful restaurant called The Milk Jug. The building was shaped something like the famous Kool Aid pitcher, and through the glass back wall of the restaurant you could watch them milking the cows.And how about the old horse drinking fountains that in the 1950's were converted to large flower gardens?? My brother and I used to hitchhike to Greenfield Park to play golf.Milwaukee still maintains lovely flowerbeds on the boulevard strips, something that you just don't see in American cities these days. I remember going to the Avante Garde to see the Baroques and the Velvet whip. I think the junior green fees were something like 50 cents.
My sisters and I grew up on 41st street across from Sherman Park in the 40's and 50's.
I remember the huge Milk Jug on the top of the building. My husband and I come to Milwaukee to the Parkinsons Clinic at Mt.

The wooden stage they would build for the 4th of July and the row of bubblers fed by a hose.
Marching from 38th street school on the 4th and getting a small flag and ice cream in a paper 'Dixie' cup with a small wooden spoon as a reward. Garbage collected by horse drawn wagons that were coupled together on Locust like a train to be pulled away by a truck.
