Alamance County, North Carolina, was a slice of Americana in the 1940s and 1950s. Whether they lived in the big city of Burlington or in Mebane and other small textile towns, children of the era have warm memories of the area. Younger kids rode the Dentzel Carousel at Burlington City Park and traded comic books, while teenagers downed hot dogs at Betty's Snack Shack and snuggled with dates at the East 70 Drive-In Theatre. In the hot summer evenings before widespread air conditioning, families gathered on front porches to enjoy cool breezes and discuss the day's events. Join author and Alamance County native J. Ronald Oakley for a stroll down Main Street.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: J.
