“Wally's Ice Cream and Helton Motors”
Artist: James Geddes

This sketch is centered at the corner of Lincoln Way
and Cleveland Avenue, across from Elder’s Tire.
Wally’s Ice Cream and diner is on our right.
The building was built specifically for the ice creamery in 1952.
The business was opened by Wally Skudlas and he continued
running the business until 1958. The business sold 4 times
the last being in the early 1970s when the name changed to
“The Hamburger.” This was short lived.

Helton Motors is a very interesting business. There were at least
 3 or 4 locations for Helton’s on High Street. They sold new
Studebaker cars and trucks and also sold used cars. I believe the
first Helton dealership was located at the top of Cherry Ave.
where G&H glass is located. They finally settled at Harrison and Lincoln
Way a block up Lincoln Way from the sketch location.
Wally’s was very popular with high school and college students as
well as families. They made 16 of their own soft serve flavors and
served breakfast all day long. Eventually this location was reopened
as Yankee Doodle in the 70s which also had a solid following.
