Time Travel: Going Back to 1957 for City Ice Skating and Going to East Fairmont Back in the Early 1960s

By Dick Duez on February 10, 2019 via Connect-Bridgeport.com

Anyone recognize this little lady? This photo believed to be from 1957 shows individuals having a good time ice skating in the area of the former Benedum Civic Center skating rink. The lady pictured is today Jeanne Unger.
The area may still be familiar for some from this photo that was taken in the early 1960s in Marion County. The photo is in East Fairmont looking northeast on Merchant Street. Anyone recognize any of the businesses?
