    Booker T's was a great place for ribs. It also had a few fights etc. but never allowed underage - except for food and was fairly responsible as businesses go. This appears to be a 1955 or 1956 era photo. Ober Boys Club was a block away, the athletic field across the street and another bar and pool hall just up the block to the north. Rondo was more than a neighborhood - it was home to a lot of great people.
