Mayfair & Indian Ladder Drive-Ins

We heard from the New Scotland Historical Association yesterday. It looks VERY promising for an interview on the Mayfair Drive-In and for photographing and scanning Indian Ladder Drive-In memorabilia. Guess I'll need to plan a trip to V'ville!

Mayfair Drive-In Theatre, Slingerlands, NY

In an email exchange with Rick Cohen at newyorkdriveins.com (and transitdrivein.com) it was pointed out to us that the Mayfair Drive-In Theatre was open for at least two seasons, not one as I had indicated in the theater description.

Not long after that, Mike Engle (co-author of Diners of New York) pointed me toward fultonhistory.com and their morgue of old newspapers. And sure enough while I was rooting around on fultonhistory.com, I located some back issues of the Schenectady Gazette from 1958 and found a handful of ads from the Mayfair.

Here are a couple for you to check out...
