A Favorite Baldwyn Business - The Ritz Grill
Co-located with the Ritz theater, this little snack bar was a great place not only to get a good hot dog and "soda", but to meet and greet friends. It was a little too small to dance to the music of the big juke box near the front (most of us weren't allowed to dance in public) but it was a cozy place anyway.
Photos above show some of the lovely ladies that frequented the Grill. Maureen became a server and worked there for a long time.
Also pictured is Mrs. Gladys Gentry and the famous popcorn machine at the theater. What a terrific aroma came out of that popper....
Guess you will know most of the folks, if not we have the names.
I can still see Harold Murley putting those "dogs" away, one or more a minute!
