Remember the days of big band, the Inglaterra Ballroom, Kramer’s, Downy Flake, Sugar Bowl, trolleys, Gipps and Peoria’s “Big White Store” – Block & Kuhl’s? How about the Blue Shadow Blues baseball team, or the Caterpillar Diesels, who formed the backbone of the U.S. team that won the gold in 1952? And of course, who could forget movies at the Palace, Madison and Beverly theaters.
Join us for a nostalgic visit into Peoria’s more recent past – the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s.
