    The New Mountainlair opened on October 27, 1967 With a 100 print photography exhibit, Centennial Camerama. I’m proud to say one of those prints was mine.

    Nice! Do you have a link to it you can show us?

    I spent far too much time hanging out on either the old front steps and the Lair Plaza.

    No link, just an old newspaper print of the picture I took.  My grandmom, who lived on Wilson Ave., was feed chocolate candy to April  the little girl who lived nextdoor.  You can’t see it in this old pic, but April was covered in chocolate.

    I have very fond memories of the Lair. Saw the Beatles Let it Be movie (which is hard to get nowadays) and the funniest movie I ever saw, Freebie and the Bean. Also Hs the pleasure of seeing Jim Comstock with both arena in a cast, and Linus Pauling, along with Roy Buchanan concert.

    Also remember Dr. Eldoonie who either sold funnel cakes or did balloon animals or such.

    Concerts in the upstairs ballroom. Bowling downstairs. Remember when they opened the lounge downstairs.
