The Fedora Bar

Where Is The Fedora Bar?

Vintage Aficionado "Wild Root" found this picture on-line, and many theories on where “The Fedora Bar” actually is.

Updated November 2007: For many years, none of us knew where it was or what kind of establishment it was until Doug Palumbo discovered it's location. Finding The Fedora Bar - "During Prohibition, the restaurant (known as Charlie’s Garden) was run as a law-abiding operation. However, as was the case with many “legitimate” businesses during that time, they also ran a speakeasy in the back of the building, complete with passwords and a hidden door."

 This looks like a great place to visit! Have you been there? If so, drop us a line.

Carolina Quirk And The Treasure Of The Lost Time Capsule: December 17th, 2007

Recently my grandmother (on my mother’s side), a wonderful woman passed away peacefully at the age of 97. Our family had been planning to visit her at her home in St. Louis over Christmas since this summer, and we decided that we would go to her home as planned and help with finalizing matters and to have a memorial service.

Among all this, my mother told me and my brother that in the late 1950s or early 1960s her father and next door neighbor had buried a time capsule in their backyard under their brick barbeque. It was my grandmother’s wish that after she passed that the capsule be dug up. The barbeque has long since fallen into disuse and is very overgrown, so it should be a bit of a challenge. Adding to this is the fact that no one is quite sure if it was buried directly under, or to the side of the structure.

So with a spirit of suburban adventure I will don my gear and head out to the backyard in a week with my brother to find and unearth the time capsule. I will fully document it and what (if anything) we recover. Our family had been planning to visit her at her home in St. Louis over Christmas since this summer, and we decided that we would go to her home as planned and help with finalizing matters and to have a memorial service.
