Scott Beck — a managing partner with the group that is turning Swanky Frank’s into The Little Barn — needs help.
He’d like to hang some pictures of the building’s history. Not Swanky Frank’s — before that. When it was Dairy Queen.
But he can’t find any. They’ve melted away, like a Blizzard Treat in the summer sun.
Surely someone who worked there — flipping Brazier burgers — has a photo somewhere.
If you do, contact email@example.com. And cc “06880.”
We’re licking our lips in anticipation.
This is not the Dairy Queen we’re looking for. The photo above shows what is now the entrance to Playhouse Square. This DQ later became the Crest Drive-In. We’re looking for the Dairy Queen that turned into Swanky Frank’s, near Barnes & Noble.
