Does anyone remember either of these two places. Worked at the Camelot Inn as a busboy in the early 70's and as a repairman/handyman in the late 70's at Michigan Microwave. Michigan Microwave sold microwaves and repaired them and also vending machines.

Was the Camelot Inn now whats called the Allen Park Motor Lodge on Southfield Rd? I've lived in Allen Park my whole life, but I'm 24 so I wasn't around back in the 70s.

I guess that answers my question. Great link, Dodge. There are some good pictures and info in that book. I am always intrigued looking at pictures of Allen Park going back to the early 1900s.

Little-buddy: Was the Camelot Inn known for it's prime rib? Somehow, that's what popped into my mind when I read Camelot Inn. I've been there a couple of times. In the 70's.

9936sussex, the Camelot Inn was know for it prime rib, suit and tie after 6pm and the Fox Trot nightly since 1963. They had a 3 piece band that played most nights and the owner and his buddy once they got drinking would get up there and sing. As a busboy you could have anything to eat except the trout,and as much as you wanted to eat and drink(pop,milk). So it was a good deal for a young guy who loved to eat, plus the tips where great.
