Funland Amusement Park was south of and deeper in the corner at 7850 NW 27th Avenue. (Ad for Funland at: . A trailer dealer is to the west of Frank 'n Bun. Northside Shopping Center is in the foreground on the north side of NW 79th Street.

Thank you for your comments. I wish we could find more photos of the Frank 'n Bun because virtually everyone who was down here at the time remembers it as a place with good food, fast service and nice carhops. I went there as a kid with my aunt and her boss who loved the place, and if I was lucky we then went over to the adjacent Funland amusement park afterwards.

Thank you so much for posting this photo. My grandfather owned Frank 'n Bun, and this picture brings back so many wonderful memories. This site is truly a treasure,

All of these photos of Northside/Sears brings back special memories. Every Friday we would get our .25 cents allowance. Our parents would take us to Northside Plaza where my brother and I would go directly to the candy booth in the center of the aisle inside Sears and spend .5 cents for a piece of chocolate candy. Then we would go to the 5 and dime out the west door (I think it was a Kresge's) where I would but a new 'Matchbox' car and my brother would get a couple of new comic books. Several decades later I still have many of the cars, in their original little blue & yellow boxes, and he still has most of the comic books. When our father retired, while we were still young, our parents went to that mobile home lot across the street (shown in the picture) and purchased the mobile home we would live in once the house was sold. They had it delivered to Stuart, Fl and we moved there. They moved it again ten years later to Gainesville and had it until they died. Thanks so much for these photos!
