This here electronic oasis is going to be a work in progress for some time. And I'm quite certain it'll take a while for the tens of thousands of former co-workers to happen upon it.

When the Kingston commissary was closed, I raided the filing cabinets that were transferred to our basement at #3, 400 Kidder St. I knew damn well that the history of Franklin's contained within those steel cabinets would mean next to nothing to the Friendlys brass, so I made off with untold pictures, menus, waitress ribbons, table cards, door decals, coupons, Big Ben hand puppets, newsletters, management bulletins and much, much more.

So anyway, going forward, expect to see a lot of those items scanned and uploaded to this site.

And if you've got anything at all to add to the mix, please forward it.
