1955 – St. Marys, PA – Population, around 9000.
I couple of brothers built a little shack in the front yard of their farm on the “Million Dollar Highway” just outside of town.
The “Million Dollar Highway” was so named because that’s what it cost to build the 25 mile stretch of road between DuBois, PA and St. Marys back in the Depression ’30’s by the CCC over mountainous terrain. Today, that same road would cost Billions to build.
But I Digress.
I don’t remember the brothers names but they had been to a city somewhere and ate some pizza and decided to bring pizza to the hicks.
You drove down a dirt driveway and pulled into the field to get to the counter. Take out only.
We would buy a pizza and drive another mile or 2 down the Million Dollar Highway to the drive in movies.
I’ve never had pizza that tasted any better than that pizza. PERIOD!
