This image shows the location of the old Y & W Drive-in theatre on North Walnut near 37 (note Walnut merging with 37 near the top of the image). The drive-in is the large white spot just below the center of the image. The site today (2013) consists of TIS Bookstore Inc at 5005 North State Road 37, and Taylor Imprinted Sportswear at 5001 North State Road 37. Also, the Taylor's Par 3 Golf Course is today (2013) to the immediate south of where the drive-in is located in this image. See also images P0041255 and P0041258.
