The ice cream stand was located on the northeast corner of Grove Ave. (Route 57) and E. 31st Street, and had its Grand Opening exactly 59 years ago today.
According to the city directories, it seemed to survive at 3029 Grove Avenue until around 1966, when it apparently became Hanna's Drive-in. But the following year, it appears that a brand new Lawson's replaced it.
The Lawson's store and a Sohio service station co-existed on that corner until the 1990s. By then, the Lawson's had become a Dairy Mart. But the Dairy Mart disappeared from the directory after its address was listed as a 'no return' in 1992 and as 'not verified' in the 1993 book.
Today a massive BP station and store sit on the spot with no evidence that Super Kream ever was there. But I'm sure Super Kream lives on in the memories of the neighborhood kids who enjoyed the refreshing treats served up there from 1954 to 1965 or so.
|I'm guessing Super Kream was located just north of the current BP station at Grove and E. 31st|
