  • I went to Edison in the late 40's and 50's as did my sister and brother. Before Southfield was an Expressway we just walked from Rosedale Park over to the Grandmont area as ir was called. After school if we had a little extra money we could go upstairs to a bowling alley on grand river and for 10 cents a line perfect our game before going home, also the Norwest theater on Saturday. I have not been back to Detroit for many years but still have very fond memories of Edison.
