FOLEY: In many ways it was like a little star in the sky that twinkled down there by itself for awhile.
NASH: It was. It really was the only thing, except Actors was there.
FOLEY: And then the Science Museum anchored on the other end eventually.
NASH: But that didn’t happen right away. But it was pretty soon.
FOLEY: In the late seventies. It wasn’t too long.
NASH: Was it?
FOLEY: Yeah, it was in the late seventies.
NASH: I couldn’t remember that exactly. But I do remember...yeah, it was
