REMEMBER? The "bird Whistle Man", who wandered around downtown selling whistles, toy birds, flags, etc., etc. Also the "little people" couple who ran the friendly newstand at Grant & Market for so many years, Watching doughnuts take form at Stockon & Ellis, Watching FREE sports films at lunch in the Roos Bros. theater.
