The Days of Glory

This was posted on Facebook by the first girl I had ever kissed, Jeanne V.

This was just blocks from my parents house. If you notice the tall sign in the background, left side, I think that is the giant ice cream cone representative of Carvel Ice Cream shop. It was a Long Branch landmark. 
Jeanne wrote “Classic picture of Brighton Avenue in West End, Long Branch with Bruce standing outside the Turntable, the cool place to buy records. In the late 1960s – early 1970’s I remember discovering and buying albums of musicians from Cream to Don McLean there. Sadly, this section of buildings was destroyed by a big fire a couple years ago.”
