A lunch stand, said to be an old rail car, stood on the corner of Monroe Street and Diamond Alley for years prior to the end of WWI. In 1918, Art Wakeman purchased the property it sat on and constructed the building that today is the Calabash Party Store. We aren't sure what happened to the stand, but it reappeared in the 1930's just east of the Bangor elevator on the north side of Monroe Street. It was known as Burt's Sanitary Lunch Stand. We aren't sure who Burt was either. Right next to the stand and to the east, was the city bandstand. Our request for pictures failed to produce one of the bandstand. The five buddies are (l to r); Cecil Monk, Leon Gough, Bob Kibbie, Mike Stafford, and Elmer Owen.
