Gil Small? Lived in the 1200 block on 46th Ave? Did he have three sisters? The youngest was Pat Small? Geez, talk about memories. Pat and I used to go to the matinees at the Sunset Theatre every saturday. We would put a whole package of red hots in our mouths and then start to laugh. I can't tell you how many times the usher had to shush us up. We were really naughty.

Later in the 50's I worked there behind the candy counter. Also, do you remember the Busy Bee Market on the corner of 46th and Irving? Also Sunset Poultry across the street where you could purchase a freshly slaughtered chicken?
