Making Holiday Memories – New Jersey artist Lloyd Garrison has prepared a pair of new holiday cards featuring paintings of the area. Walt’s, pictured above, was a favorite hang out for Rahway and Linden residents in the 1950s and 60s, Garrison says. “It was a place to meet old friends and make new ones. Very few places like that can be found today,” the artist said. “They had the best hamburgers and hot dogs.” Garrison pointed out that to the left of Walt’s was Jean’s Beans and to the right was O’Keefe’s miniature golf course. Garrison’s other holiday card for 2009 features a downtown view of modern Cranford. For information about purchasing the cards, call Lloyd’s Gallery at 609-918-1776 or visit www.lloydgarrison.com.
