jjoyne5..Do you know which church got the big “T' sign? I have heard that story myself…I’m updating the overview for Telegraph.
michigandriveins…The Toledo drive-in was the Franklin Park DI. The picture you are linked to was the Maumee DI. Maumee, Ohio.
The Telegraph Drive-In (We called it the “Big T” for its monumental neon “T” on the back of the screen)was located on Telegraph Rd, about ½ mile north of Alexis road. After it was torn down, sometime in the late 70s-early 80s, the neon “T” found a new home on a church in Michigan
I posted a blurb about the Telegraph Drive-In over on CT’s Miracle Mile Drive-In (Toledo) page. I believe it was prior to the Telegraph getting it’s own CT page, because of the dates and I’d searched for this by name first.
I don’t see a listing for the Toledo Drive-In here. This is supposed to be a photo of it from 1950. I am trying to find it’s exact location, I believe it was on Detroit Ave. Does anyone know about this one?
The Telegraph Drive-in was at 5969 Telegraph Rd, Toledo, OH 43612-4548.
Yes, especially that flyer for a rather repulsive double feature 8-)!
If memory serves, the big T was in red neon at night.
CWalczak,That is some neat stuff to look at,thanks for passing it on.
This former drive-in was located on Telegraph Rd. (U.S. Rt. 24) near Alexis Rd., hence the name. Its local moniker, the “Big T” derived from the fact that there was a large letter T on the back of the theater’s screen. There are pictures of the theater and memorabilia related to it on the theater’s gallery page at Drive-ins.com: http://www.drive-ins.com/gallery/ohttele
