Wonder how many people still around that remembers Gibsons? We used to go there when I was young 1945-1946. I worked as an Elevator operator in the Biltmore Hotel-it was great fun ,I think it was the Metropolitan Theater that had many of the then Famous Stars-they used to stay at the Hotel-most were very nice.I remember the Bijou theater on Sat we could go for 10 cents and see a Vaudivelle show,a double movie and the old News,and then usually to The White Tower for Hamburgers. I have not seen the new Providence-I have gone from the Train to the Providence Hotel were I have stayed,truly a lovely Hotel.I lived in East Providence and often walked Down City to save the Carfare,when we went Home we either walked or had enough Money to take a Trolley Car. It was an experience that was sometimes good and bad-I wouldn`t trade some of those Memories for anything. I now live in My Birth Home on Block Island and am starting My 28th year of working at the BI Chamber of Commerce. Anyone coming to BI Please come in ask for Me and I will tell you where to go Politely. I know Yankee has come to BI. By the way Yankee is my very favorite Magazine-it really is New England.
