At the start of the beach season, our Friday Flashback featured Chubby Lane’s — the long-time, much loved Compo Beach concession located where the volleyball courts are now.
It drew (of course) dozens of comments.
But Chubby’s was hardly the first food service at the beach.
Jim Gray made a collage of concession stand postcards that predate Chubby’s by decades.
They were way before my time. I don’t know the back story for any of them. The buildings changed over the years — but you can tell it’s the same spot, by the distinctive small turret at the top of each one.
