Just as I remember it. I was 11 in 1952. My family moved from the Gage Park neighborhood in 1954. The Acadia had a major affect on my formative years. My wife still groans when I say a movie on TV today is one I saw at the Acadia back then. Last night the first of the Superman series that began in 1948 was on. Lois Lane, Jimmy Olson and Perry White, editor of the Daily Planet, looked just like I remembered them. Ironically I did not remember Clark Kent Superman. I still have nostalgia for those good days.
