Molly McIntire tried to get ice cream with her friends, but the diner was OUT.
Doing her part for the war effort she ordered a cherry cola instead!
Growing up in the late 1970s, early 1980s shopping malls in Los Angeles had many restaurants inside department stores.Often times I would have lunch at The Broadway, Bullocks, Sears and even Woolworths.
I remember my friends and I would stop into Woolworth's to buy makeup and get ice cream at the bar inside the store!
Remember Thrifty Drug Store's 5 cent cones?
My friend's older sister worked the ice cream counter. We always got mint chocolate chip.
