http://www.lewisshiner.com/liberation/twilight.html which made a reference to Globe and the cafe. This story gave me an idea......immediately I contacted the Chamber of Commerce in Globe, spoke with a woman who gave me a name and number of the person in charge of Main Street Preservation, who in turn shared with me a history of the building as well as whom the owner is. I am waiting for a return call from the owner. If all goes well, I plan on gaining entry to the cafe, photographing it as it is, then exhibiting the photographs while the short story by Lewis Shiner is read aloud. I will keep you posted as the project progresses....for now take a listen to song number 207 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTzt7Z2zrwY on the old Wurlitzer Jukebox with the colored tube of bubbles on the side, which sat in the Toastmaster Cafe.
