My 1st Crossing of the Mexican Border By: Glen Horn

I was a junior in high school and on the Madison High School Gymnastic team.  A few of us got the idea that we wanted to cross the border and venture into the wild streets and night club bars for some teenage excitement.  We scouted around the strip bars and finally ended up in the famous Long Bar.

The pitchers of beer were flowing freely and it was not long before we were all seeing double and having a grand ole time of being completely hammered at the early age of sixteen/seventeen.  

Back then you could get your picture taken and get it back from the guy in just a short time before you had to leave.  If I remember correctly, it only took 15-20 minutes to get the photo developed  which cost 50 cents or a dollar.  

The guys in the photo (in order left to right) are; John Little, myself, John Miller, mystery guy & Ed Horwatt.
