Where The Montage Sits… In the old days where the Montage sits today used to be a Sears, Roebuck and Company, a Pennys’ and a barber shop among other little places, including the Sierra Bar where my dad worked before he went into the Army Air Force. I used to keep my shoe shine box in the back of my dad’s bar and when I walked in to town (I lived on what is now known as the corners of Keystone and 7th) I would shine shoes for $.15 a shine and if I needed more money I would go to other bars. If I made enough money I could go see a movie for $.11 and I would get my popcorn for $.05 at Payless, which was across the street from the movies and was cheaper than buying it at the theatre. I was 6 years old at that time.
