My mom and dad talk about that hobby shop now-and-then. It was located adjacent to the movie theater...sort of where National Bakery is right now (I think). It was long gone before I was born...but my dad remembers buying models there as a kid and that they had a large slotcar track!

It's been a long time since I've seen those wooden nickels. Tom was my grandpa and I always heard about the hobby shop and slot car racing when I was growing up. If I remember correctly he had a store on Forest Home Ave at one point, and then a store in Greendale.

Does anyone know what years Tom's was in business? I thought maybe late 50's into the early 60's but I see the wooden nickels are dated 1967. I still have an old plastic model with a Tom's sticker on the box.

I asked my mom and she said it wasn't there in 1954 when her and dad got married, and she thinks the shop was only open seven or eight years. Not great info, but it could help narrow things down a bit.
