A View of the Past – January 1, 2017

This week’s view is of Ed Zalko (left) and Tom Zulauf hamming it up for the camera at Ron Stein’s Dog ‘n Suds in 1968 for an advertising promotional shot.  The O’Fallon Township High School seniors worked at the popular O’Fallon drive-in restaurant which once stood opposite Community Park on Route 50 on the site of what was, until recently, Pizza Hut. Dog ‘n Suds operated there from 1961 to 1971.
